Person Of Integrity-Matthias

August 9th, 2018

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

In Acts 2:26, he was chosen to replace Judas as one of the Apostles of the early church. We don’t really see references in the Bible as to how he served, but we do know that he fit the criteria to replace Judas.

The believers in the early church were looking for someone who had been with them the whole time, from the time of Jesus’ ministry until His ascension. Matthias fit this description. He was also a witness of the resurrection of Jesus. Matthias knew Jesus, and walked with Him throughout His earthly ministry. Through prayer and a process called the “the casting of lots”, Matthias was chosen as the replacement for Judas.

The faithfulness of Matthias to replace the leadership of Judas inspires us to serve God in the church with a willing heart and to live a life of Integrity.
