Prayer Challenge Day 14; Praying for His Integrity

June 22, 2009

Integrity means “sound, complete, integrated.” To the extent that a person’s ethics and morality are integrated, that person has integrity. To the extent that a person’s ethics and morality are not integrated, that person lacks integrity.

 

I have found several views on a man’s integrity that I want to share with you. I hope that you are blessed & enlightened by them as I was.

 

R.C. Sproul says;

To be undone means to come apart at the seams, to be unraveled. To disintegrate means exactly what the word suggests, “dis integrate.” To integrate something is to put pieces together in a unified whole…. The word integrity…[suggests] a person whose life is whole or wholesome. In modern slang we say, “He’s got it all together.”

To have integrity is to be integrated, to be whole, to have it all together in a sense, to be consistent.

 One Holy Passion (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1987).

Kenneth Boa Th.M.; Ph.D.; D.Phil: had this to say;

When we live our entire lives before the face of God (corem deo) and practice a constant abiding in his presence, we realize that being people who do not manifest integrity is inconsistent with the dignity and destiny we’ve been called to. We have been called to live on a higher plane than that, to “live a life worthy of the calling [we] have received” (Ephesians 4:1), because, now, Christ is in us. He wants to live his life through us (Galatians 2:20); we are not only his representatives (2 Corinthians 5:20), as members of his church we are, in some mysterious way, his body (Ephesians 1:23; Colossians 1:24).

Now, that’s impossible unless he dwells in us, but therein lies the solution. In fact, this is the genius of the Christian life. Christianity is not a religion; it’s a relationship. Christianity is not about rules and regulations. Instead, it is the presence and power of a person who indwells us and promises to never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).

I encourage you to pray that your husband would abide in Christ.  When we are constantly abiding in Him, our integrity is not in question.

Pray that he will consistently seek the face of Christ through daily prayer and Bible study.

Pray that he seek want to please God & do what is right.  A man can be highly valued among men, but detestable in God’s sight (Luke 16:15)

Praise the Lord that he has given you a husband who seeks to be whole and integrated with his Lord, consistent in his walk with the Lord.

Praise the Lord that your husband is by God & man as a man of integrity thus leaving a legacy of blessings for his children.
