Courageous faith aligns with convictions based on Truth!
Conviction is the conscience of the mind.
- Nicolas Chamfort
Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct.
- Thomas Carlyle
Honest conviction is my courage; the Constitution is my guide.
- Andrew Johnson
Convictions determine conduct and conduct defines character and character reveals Christianity. The same God who tells you how to get saved is the same God who tells you how to live saved. We must reach people where they are but that does not mean that we make it easy for them to stay there. Staying aligned with truth takes deliberate action. As leaders we can not afford to forget or ignore to teach the values of Jesus and allow exceptions. We cannot afford to soften the language and expectations of the cross just to build a bigger tent. We just cannot assume that people will get Jesus values by osmosis. Over time, Jesus values will fade and drift from their original position of prominence.
Jesus is calling for a life change in you! I am calling for a life change in you.
