I have been preaching through the Sermon on the Mount at Resolved and I this week I am preaching on Matthew 5:38-48. In my preparation I came across this quote which perfectly summarizes the character Christians should have.
Jesus’ disciples should be people of such integrity of character and truthfulness of heart that whatever they say is absolutely believable and dependable. A person of integrity is one who in daily conversation is so truthful, dependable, genuine, guileless and reliable that his or her words are believed without an oath.
Michael J Wilkins, Matthew: NIV Application Commentary, pgs 247-248
How do you think we get that type of character?
