The word for 2019 for me was integrity. You can talk all day, but the old adage is true: actions speak louder than words.
A key component of God’s holiness is that God/Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever (Hebrew 13:8; Revelation 1:8; Psalm 90:2); God does not change or vary in Godself (Malachi 3:6; Numbers 23:9; Lamentations 3:2-24). This Lack of variability is the core of what integrity is: I am the same inside and out, alone or around others, in season and out of season. And so being HOLY means to not vary in your walk with God, to remain in God’s perfect will for you.
The word of God declares that we are to be DOERS and not HEARERS only; that faith without works is dead; and that we are to love in word AND deed (James 1:22; James 2:18; 1 John 3:18). Most importantly, if you know what is right and fail to do it? It is sin!!! (James 4:17; Titus 1:16).
