Sermon on Integrity and Faith in Christ

  Integrity and Faith in Christ

The profound importance of integrity and faith in our Christian walk. These virtues are exemplified in the lives of individuals whose stories are recorded in the Bible. We will focus on three distinct examples of integrity, beginning with Joseph in Genesis 39:7-12, followed by Job in Job 2:3, and concluding with the ultimate example of Jesus Christ in 1 Peter 2:22. Let us delve into these passages to draw inspiration and guidance for our own lives.

  • "Integrity in Daily Life" (Proverbs 10:9)
  • "Integrity in words" (Proverbs 12:22)
  • "Integrity in Work" (Colossians 3:23)
  • "Integrity of Relationships" (Proverbs 11:3)

1. "To the Integrity of Joseph" (Genesis 39:7-12):

In Genesis 39:7-12, we find the compelling account of Joseph, a man of unwavering integrity. As a slave in Potiphar's house, Joseph faced temptation when Potiphar's wife tried to seduce him. Yet, Joseph's response was a resounding declaration of his commitment to integrity. He asked, "How then can I do this great wickedness and sin against God?" (Genesis 39:9). Joseph's steadfastness and commitment to his faith serve as an example for us. Even in the face of temptation and adversity, his integrity shone through as a beacon of light and righteousness.

2. "To the Integrity of Job" (Job 2:3):

Job, often remembered for his unwavering faith during immense suffering, also displayed extraordinary integrity. In Job 2:3, Satan questions the authenticity of Job's devotion, suggesting that Job's integrity is merely a response to God's blessings. However, God affirms Job's character, saying, "He still holds fast his integrity, although you incited me against him to destroy him without reason." (Job 2:3). Job's integrity was so profound that even in the midst of extreme suffering, he maintained his trust in God and did not waver in his faith.

3. "To The Integrity of Jesus" (1 Peter 2:22):

While Joseph and Job are exemplary models of integrity and faith, the ultimate example is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In 1 Peter 2:22, we read about Jesus: "He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth." Jesus lived a life of absolute integrity, free from sin and deception. His actions and words were a reflection of His perfect obedience to the Father. The life of Jesus demonstrates the purity and integrity we should strive for in our own walk of faith.
