Yesterday, we found two ways that Jesus gave us in Matthew 26:41 to avoid many temptations in life. But what about unavoidable temptations that come our way?
Temptation is such a snare for you and me. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Satan has not been annihilated, but his power has been reduced and his weapons have been impaired. He is still a mighty foe, but he is no match for the power of God.
In his final message to the people of Israel, Joshua challenges them to worship the Lord with integrity and loyalty.
People of integrity are joyful because they align themselves with God’s Word in every area of their lives. They follow His instructions.
In our hunt for integrity, our souls long for wholeness. Left to ourselves, there’s an uneasy feeling of incompleteness, strange vacuum that needs to be filled.
Even a man of complete integrity is in need of repentance. One of the great barriers to faith for many people of integrity is trusting in their own righteousness.
As much as we may like to avoid every kind of evil, the truth is, we live in an evil age. This is a sinful world. So, how do you maintain integrity when evil exists all around you?
While it may appear that those who are dishonest get ahead, the Bible says, “the LORD rewards each man for his integrity….”
Our hunt for the One True God is a hunt for integrity. As truth, God is a God of integrity and only in Him can our souls find integrity.
