Anchor Text:

“But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife. But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation? Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this. And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.” Genesis 20:3-6

We are living in a generation whereby man is desperate to commit wickedness and evil against their fellow.

Men and women of God are common in our time but men and women of integrity are scarce . It is common in our time where man of God is comfortable sleeping with members, member against member, father defiling daughter, boss in office sleeping with fellow staff for promotion and favour .How can you claimed that you are born again, Spirit filled yet lack integrity of heart. The true image of God is integrity.

Walking with God and working for God required a man of integrity of the heart.

Though the harvest is plenty and the labourer are few yet God can never compromise His standard. The standard for recruitment in the kingdom workforce remain same in Old Testament and New Testament.

God told Abraham in Genesis 17:1 “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.”

Jesus Christ came and emphasized on the same standard.

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:48

Nothing can influence the standard and the choice of God regarding his relationship with man therefore God is still searching for a man of integrity in the land despite the high level of wickedness and iniquities .
Above all, the whole world including religious body, private and public sectors are looking for men and women of dependable character.

    I do rather wonder at the place of religion in our society today. Or rather I wonder at the particularity of belief and the divisions and wonder whether we have it quite right. Some years ago I “studied” mysticism and perhaps not altogether to my surprise I discovered that the similarity of thought was more evident than the reverse. The Sufi poets report similar experience of unity with a greater entity to Julian and Norwich. Nirvana is another word for it, epiphany yet another. We all search for meaning, for connection and find it in different ways. I am not a christian and yet find great peace in the Book of Common Prayer or Ecclesiastes. I find equal worth in buddhist philosophy and poetry. My tastes are eclectic but perhaps I reach the same place in the end.
