Daily SOAP: Integrity = Credibility

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading 2 Corinthians 1.

Scripture

“For our proud confidence is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you.” –2 Corinthians 1:12

Observation

Paul’s credibility and confidence sprang from his integrity–living consistent with what he claimed to be true. It was not the worldly accolades many seek and trust in, but the power of God evidenced in a charged life.

Application

Walk the walk. So many believers don’t practice what they preach, or they dumb down scripture to make it within their reach in their own flesh. My integrity is one of my greatest assets. It can be gone in a minute, so carefully guard it.

Prayer

Father, thank You that Your ways are different from the world’s ways. You look deep within and then transform us from the inside out. Thank you that I’ll never be tempted beyond what I can endure and for your Spirit which strengthens me to walk the walk 24/7.

Amen.
