Followers need a model to see more than they need a motto to say.
Integrity is when your thoughts, words, and actions match.
It is more than image.
The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them. Pro 11:3
- In your daily life, do you let integrity guide you?
- What can help you increase your integrity?
Peter could speak credibly about persecutions because he endured them himself. He practiced what he preached (1Pet 4:12-14).
In Acts 5 we can see how he suffered for his faith. Acts 12 reports his imprisonment. Eventually, the Romans crucified him upside down instead of right-side up.
