Integrity and Holiness

Chuck Colson died tonight
God Bless his family and friends


Chuck Colson said:

We must be the same person in private and in public.
Only the Christian worldview
gives us the basis for this kind of integrity.

I don't think the job of the church is to make people happy.
I think it's to make them holy.


Holiness

Is. 6:3               We behold Him who is holy
Heb. 12:14        We seek holiness
Rom. 6:19         We become a slave to holiness
Rom. 6:22         We must have the fruit of holiness
2Cor. 7:1          We must perfect holiness
1Pet. 1:15-16    We must become holy
1Thess. 3:13     We can be established in holiness
1Thess. 4:4       We must live in holiness and honor
Rev. 22:11        We must continue in holiness

1Chr. 16:29       Praise Him in the beauty and splendor of holiness (Ps. 29:2; 96:9)
Is. 35:8             He has set us on a highway of holiness
Heb. 12:10        His discipline leads us to holiness
Ez. 36:23          He will reveal His holiness in us and through us to the nations



Integrity

Serves as a guide in life’s moral decisions Prov 11:3
Hates falsehood in every form Prov 13:5-6
Is something to be held onto, even in tough times Job 2:3
Keeps its word even when it hurts Ps 15:1-4
Isn’t afraid to run when evil comes knocking 2Tim 2:22
Say both yes and no and means what it says Jas 5:22
Backs up what it says and how it lives Titus 2:7
Is what God looks for in a person’s character 1 Chron 29:17
