Integrity of Heart
“Integrity is what you do when nobody is around or watching.”
1. Identify the Problems
Thought Life – 1 John 2:15-17
Sexual Immorality – 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5,7
Attitude – Jeremiah 9:23-24
Words – Ephesians 4:29
Priorities – 2 Corinthians 4:18
2. Get Help!
When we keep our sins to our self, it festers and gets worse.
Hear me, you cannot do it alone!
3. Realize, it takes time!
Pursuing the Life of Integrity means always being open to the refining process God is pushing us towards.
Bottom-line: if it interferes with our purity before God, it’s going to take time to fully overcome with God’s help and our constant desire for purity.
4. Never Underestimate!
If you know you struggle in an area don’t put yourself in situations where you’ll be tempted.
We must be considerate that our own actions do not prevent someone from realizing salvation or continuing to live as a new creation.
5. The job is never done!
We will always be a work in progress, until we enter into heaven!
Can people tell what you stand for by the way you act—not what you say, but how you live your life?
