Righteousness and Integrity

14 05 2011

As we look a final time at entering the gates of righteousness we want to add to our understanding of righteous by looking at integrity in scripture. Proverbs 13:6 tells us:


  “Righteousness guards the man of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner.”


     What does it mean to be a man of integrity? Integrity has several different definitions in the Webster’s dictionary, some are more familiar than others. We most frequently associate integrity with a moral code, leading some into condemnation, rather than into the reality God is calling a man of integrity into – an unimpaired condition. This definition of integrity is more accurate for a man of integrity, because the death of Christ brings us to that place of having an unimpaired condition.


     God created us for righteousness and relationship but we must come in to this relationship with integrity, an unimpaired condition by way of Christ.  


     Webster’s definition of integrity, an unimpaired condition, adds to our knowledge of living a righteous life. This study into righteousness has changed how I view my relationship with God and I see living a righteous life is possible for it is what God created you and I for.

So no matter how we feel about ourselves, we can walk with joy and confidence through the gates of righteousness and into a life of righteousness.
