Person Of Integrity-Abraham

June 22nd, 2018 No comments

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

According to James 2:23, the New Living Translation says, “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith. He was even called the friend of God.”

Abraham shows us how we can have a meaningful friendship with God. Walk with Him with a trusting and obedient heart. It is better to be out of our comfort zone in God’s will than to be outside of God’s will and stay in our comfort zone.

Hebrews 11:8 says, “By faith, Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith, he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country.”

The faithfulness of Abraham to travel to an unknown destination inspires us to trust and obey God’s directions and to live a life of Integrity.
