and the

What can I DO
or CHANGE
in my life so that

in your heart
will determine
how you act when placed
in a tempting situation!
Psalm 26:2….

If we are going to live
we must know what integrity
looks like.
It comes from spending time in the

not need to be ashamed,
handling accurately the
word of truth.” (NASB)

God’s Word says into
our daily activities.”
It means…
to be a doer of the Word.
James 1:22….
“Do not merely listen to
the word, and so deceive
yourselves. Do what it says.”
(NIV)
Note:
If we DO what God says and
APPLY what we learn to our
lives, we will become

hope, guidance, security and
protection.
If we DO NOT APPLY
what the Bible says
to our lives we become shallow
and empty.

that requires him to APPLY the
Word of God

Job was a man who went
through an awful lot
BUT remained faithful!
Job 2:3….
“Then the LORD said to Satan,
‘Have you considered my servant
Job? There is no one on earth
like him; he is blameless and
upright, a man who fears God
and shuns evil. And he still
maintains his integrity, though
you incited me against him to
ruin him without any reason.’ ”
God said Job is…
• Blameless
• Upright
• Fears God
• Shuns evil

LORD will renew their
strength. They will soar on
wings like eagles; they will
run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be
faint.” (NIV)
Mark 12:14….
“They came to him and said,
‘Teacher, we know you are a
man of integrity. You aren’t
swayed by men, because you

God in accordance with the
truth. Is it right to pay taxes
to Caesar or not?” (NIV)

… kept trying to convince
Job that he had sinned against
God and needed
to get right with God.
Job 2:9,10….
“His wife said to him, ‘Are
you still holding on to your
integrity? Curse God and die!’
He replied,’ You are talking like
a foolish woman. Shall we
accept good from God, and not
trouble?’ In all this, Job did
not sin in what he said.” (NIV)
We must
never let others
DICTATE
what we do.
They must never
come between us
and what is RIGHT;
what is full of INTEGRITY.
To become a
I must do
what is right
and refuse to be
persuaded by
others.
To be a
means…
1. You are WILLING to go
against the crowd
if the crowd is wrong.
2. You are WILLING to
stand alone for what is right.

(NIV)
If it doesn’t work at home, it
doesn’t work at all!
It has to start with
each of us being
deliberate about

“making sure that what
we say and do – no matter

“making our actions line
up with our heart, and
making sure our heart
is in tune with God.”
