Maintaining Moral Integrity

Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

In his book “Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome,” Kent Hughes asks some probing questions:

“1. Are we being desensitized by the present evil world? Do things that once shocked us now pass us by with little notice? . . .

“2. Where do our minds wander when we have no duties to perform? . . .

“3. What are we reading? Are there books or magazines or files in our libraries that we want no one else to see? . . .

“4. How many chapters of the Bible did we read last week?”

In an age when information is readily available it is imperative that the people of God keep a watch on their eyes, their ears and their minds.

To maintain our moral integrity it is essential that we make a commitment before God to integrity in every aspect of our lives.  It is important to focus on our responsibilities and not our needs.  It is essential that we call sin, SIN.  We must be willing to pay whatever price is exacted in order to retain our convictions.  Most importantly it is imperative that we consciously, consistently, continually life in the presence of our Lord and Savior.
