Lessons to Learn

A man of integrity is wholly for God and against evil.

Integrity is not always obvious, or noticed by others.

Sometimes it’s about what we don’t do that makes us people of integrity.

What does integrity mean in everyday life?

Standing up for God, standing up for what is right - where you work, where you go to school, at home.

Trying not to give into the temptations of everyday life – music, movies, drugs, people.

Choosing what God wants over what we want.

Remember, No one is perfect

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. (Isaiah 64:6)

As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die... (Ezekiel 33:11)

The Lord is...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (II Peter 3:9)

God loves us no matter what

For God so loved the world, that he gave his ONLY BEGOTTEN Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:6)

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
