Integrity and Your Walk with Christ

Leith Anderson, a Minnesota pastor, published an excellent book in 1994 titled Winning the Values War: In a Changing Culture, in which he speaks of “The Forgotten Value.” What value was he talking about? Integrity!

Psalm 15:2-5 does a wonderful job of describing a person of integrity. It says, “He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who . . . honors those who fear the Lord, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.” 

This psalm really calls for the followers of Christ to evaluate themselves by asking: Is my life integrated so well with God that His values are my values? Or is my life so different from biblical values that it would be difficult to tell whether or not I follow Christ? In other words, does our walk match our talk?

Psalm 15:2-5 is a powerful passage. I encourage you to review and meditate on it. Ask the Lord to show you if there are any areas that you need to improve to more clearly reflect Jesus Christ.
