Integrity and Holiness
Galatians 6:7-9 – Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
Romans 6:1-2 – What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?
Who you are and what you do when nobody is around is the true measure of your integrity. Today my intention is to give you some pointers to discerning loss of integrity and holiness in your life and in the lives of the people around you.
