Integrity in dealing with God and Others

Hebrews 4:13 says, “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”

The 8th Commandment says that we must not steal. It means we should not be dishonest in dealing with others; neither should we be unfair and unjust, nor should we sinfully take things that rightfully belong to others.

Whether we are dealing with others or with God, we have a responsibility and accountability to speak with honesty, think with sincerely and act with integrity.

In Acts 5:1-10, Peter spoke judgement against Ananias and his wife Sapphira for lying to the Holy Spirit .. Acts 5:3, “Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land?” Instantly, Ananias fell down and died and his wife not knowing her husband had died earlier, fell down and died for lying too.

If we have been dealing unjustly with others, we must repent and set things right like Samuel addressing to all Israel in 1 Samuel 12:3:-

Here I stand. Testify against me in the presence of the LORD and his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? Whose donkey have I taken? Whom have I cheated? Whom have I oppressed? From whose hand have I accepted a bribe to make me shut my eyes? If I have done any of these, I will make it right.”

If we have a covenant with God, we must fulfil it. For Ecclesiastes 5:4 says, “When you make a vow to God, do not delay in fulfilling it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow.”

Jesus said:-

“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much” (Luke 16:10).

Once, the Lord spoke to me about some hindrances to a project of a Church building and prompted me to deliver a message to the Church’s founder of the project to repent and make things right.

Faithfulness, willingness to obey God and honesty in dealing with others are some of the key factors for God’s blessing upon the hands of our ministry work to grow from faith to faith, power to power and glory to glory, without giving the devil a foothold to hinder our calling.

Hudson Taylor quotes, “God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply.”
