How to live your life with conviction
“So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
There was a question coined a few years ago that goes like this: If you were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? That's a tough question, especially if your life has been characterized by a lukewarm relationship with God. Would there be enough evidence to convict?
The apostle Paul was a convicted man. He knew the Lord Jesus Christ and he lived his life in total devotion to Him and His purposes. He had a pastor’s heart for his people and a passion to reach those who didn't know Christ with the message of the Gospel. So what is keeping Christians today from having that same heart?
As a church, we’re called not to low standards of Christian living, but to the highest possible and the most heavenly of all callings. That doesn't just mean we have high moral character. It also means we live our lives sold out to loving others with the love of Jesus.
It's my prayer that there would be more than enough evidence to convict you! So instead of living a lukewarm Christian life, commit yourself to God's purposes and live boldly for His name!
LIVE YOUR LIFE NOT AS A LUKEWARM BELIEVER, BUT FULLY CONVICTED AND COMMITTED TO GOD'S PURPOSES!
