Guilty or Convicted?

Are you guilty? Are you convicted? Do you believe with all your heart that Jesus is the Son of God? Is He your Lord and Savior? Are you willing to stand convicted when others accuse you of this? Even if it costs you everything?

We see people’s beliefs change with the wind today. They follow whatever today’s fad is until tomorrow comes with a new one. It doesn’t matter if it’s clothing, entertainment, complaining about the boss, or any number of other things.

Jesus calls us to believe in Him, to follow Him, and to stop worrying about this world. He didn’t say we were to stop living in this world, but to understand that it will pass away and a permanent home for us is waiting. One that will not pass away.

I pray we all come to realize just how little this world really means and how much Jesus means. I pray we all are willing to stand convicted of being His followers in all we do. Be convicted in Christ.

Hebrews 3:14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end.
