Did you know that courage is not the absence of fear, but the absence of self?
Courage begins with integrity; without integrity we will not find within us the resolve or the resilience to face the pressures of life.
To have integrity is to be whole and be complete - to have nothing within you that is not true to the character you possess. Everything in your life depends on integrity to function. For example, a plane you fly in across the country must have integrity in its composition to survive the flight - nothing in it that would compromise its ability to fly. In this same vein, humanity must have integrity to live lives that are not faultless, but false-less.This message shows us that to pursue a life of truth and oneness with Jesus requires the pursuit of integrity. If you want to live a life of integrity and face your life with courage, this message is for you!
This message is drawn from Uprising, a book about taking on the character of God from Erwin Raphael McManus.
