Most of this post is one from way back. I posted this to just a small group of ladies when I first began back in 2013. It was before I actually had a website and this particular one was about “Integrity”. Enjoy!
Have you ever looked up the word “integrity” in the dictionary? I can’t remember that I ever have either. Today I did and here is a link to some interesting information… https://www.google.com/#q=integrity. This link has the usual definition for the word but then it goes on to tell you other information that I still haven’t figured out. So let’s just stick with the definitions for now. The 1st definition is the one most of us think of when we hear or use the word “integrity”. However, I like the 2nd definition. I have expanded it a bit to include the synonyms and antonyms.
- the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
- the state of being whole and undivided.
- the condition of being unified, unimpaired, or sound in construction.
- internal consistency or lack of corruption…
Now there is a lot more that goes with each of these definitions, but you can explore that on your own if you wish. I would like to look at the 2nd one a little closer. Let’s apply this to us as Christian Women. We, of course, need to have the quality of being honest and have strong moral principles; we also need to have the state of being whole and unified. If we are weak in our Christian walk with the Lord, we will falter in areas that will break down our “integrity”, our internal consistency. Daily talks with God and reading His Word are just two ways we can shore up our internal consistency and make us unified in our beliefs.
I know you have heard it said we are His temple here on earth. I sometimes cringe at that because I, like a lot of people, put things into this body, or do things that affect this body that maybe I should think twice about. I know that He knows we are human, and we slip daily. He loves us anyway. Thank Goodness… That is why we need Jesus so much. God sees us Christians through Jesus’ eyes. If we know Jesus and have come to know Him as our personal Savior God only sees a king (or queen). If you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus, please click this link and it will take you to a website to read about becoming a Jesus follower. If you have any questions, the article should be able to answer most if not all of them. If not, please feel free to contact me here at this website. Thank you for your time to read my post.
I searched for the video of this song, but it is nowhere to be found. So… I will post the lyrics. They are powerful! The song is a song by Scott Cameron. I met him when he sang with the Singing Men of North Central Texas but he also has albums of his own. He Sees Me Through the Blood is one of my favorites.
He Sees Me Through The Blood – Song – Scot Cameron
With all my imperfections, faults that anyone could see, i questioned and i wondered what the Father sees in me. But He constantly reminds me He’s the Father, I’m the child so I yield in sweet surrender making calvary all worthwhile.
He sees me through the blood and claims me through the lamb. He doesn’t see my past, He takes me as I am. He doesn’t see the slave, the prisoner or the chains, He sees me through the blood, and He can only see a king.
He has covered me in mercy with His robe of righteousness. Blotting out all my transgressions, oh how great His faithfulness. when perfect Love is sometimes hard for me to comprehend, He just points me back to Calvary, reminding me again, reminding me again.
He sees me through the blood and claims me through the lamb. He doesn’t see my past; He takes me as I am. He doesn’t see the slave, the prisoner or the chains, He sees me through the blood and He can only see …
An everlasting precious flow, that makes me white as snow. No other fount I know covers like the blood of Jesus, He sees me through the blood, He sees me through the blood of Jesus, He sees me through the blood, and He can only see a king.
Remember, He loves you so much! After all, He calls you His beloved.
