Eye on Integrity-A Blameless Life

john : February 22, 2018 4:57 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Psalm 19, verses 12 and 13.

“Who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.”

These thoughts express the earnest desire of a man to be cleared of wrongdoing and to have a right relationship with God. Prayer and surrender are good starting places for making things right with God. Prayer and surrender are good starting places with God every day.

Jesus came to set us free from the tyranny of sin. If we follow Jesus daily, His truth reigns over us, and sin no longer has control over our lives. His peace will fill our hearts, and enable us to live without fear of condemnation.

Walking a blameless life is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.

Eye On Integrity-Delight In The LORD

john : February 16, 2018 5:35 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on Psalm 37, verses 4 to 6.

“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, trust in him, and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”

The starting place for standing for righteous causes is a relationship with God where we delight in Him. He then plants holy desires in our heart that become righteous causes.

For Billy Graham, that cause was preaching the Gospel.

For Mother Teresa, that cause was helping the poor.

For George Mueller, that cause was helping orphans in their distress.

For Chuck Colson, that cause was reaching out to prisoners and their families with the love of Jesus.

What will your righteous cause be? Let God be the One to move you and guide you. Commit that cause to God.

Walking with delight in the Lord is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.

Eye On Integrity-The Way Of Love

john : February 14, 2018 5:53 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK-Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on First John 4:19.

“We love because he first loved us.”

God is our teacher on the lessons of love. He initiated love at creation, and at the cross in the midst of our sinfulness. He gave His best for our worst, so that we might have the opportunity to be restored to Him through faith in Jesus Christ.

There is a Portuguese Proverb that says, “To love God is the greatest of virtues; to be loved by God is the greatest of blessings.”

There is a way for us to grow in love every day, and that is to embrace the grace that Jesus offers us and to walk in the footsteps of His love day by day.

Walking in the way of Christ’s love is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.

Person of Integrity-Prodigal Son

john : February 13, 2018 5:19 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Person of Integrity from the Bible is the Prodigal Son.

This person is mentioned in a story taught by Jesus in Luke 15.

The word “prodigal” describes someone who spends money recklessly. In this story, the Prodigal Son left home and squandered his father’s wealth on wild living. There is nothing noble about that. But that is not where his story ends. People with godly integrity are not perfect, but they are purified.

Jesus said, “When he finally came to his senses, he said to himself, “I will go home to my father and say, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son. Please take me on as a hired servant.” That is exactly what he did, and his father welcomed him with open arms. He was filled with love and compassion for his son as he returned home.

The faithfulness of the Prodigal Son to make things right with his father inspires us to be reconciled with our Heavenly Father through Jesus and to live a life of integrity.
