THE FIRST NOEL BY MARK SCHULTZ
Living by conviction is centering our life on God’s Word. That’s the bar that God set for us. It's supposed to challenge us to live by a higher standard! If you listen to my show on a regular basis, I hope you hear the challenge that I've been throwing your way: Make God's Word your moral foundation if you want a break through.
The Bible might make us uncomfortable sometimes, but it was written to bring out the best in us!
I've been reading a lot about John The Baptist & the prophet Isaiah. They both spent a lot of time challenging people around them to repent and come back to a relationship with God. Repentance is a word that some people may falsely align with judgment, but it's really about freedom.
The book of Acts says: "Repent... and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord."
Repentance sets us free from the bondage of sin. It's not hate or manipulation. It’s how we cut through our sin problem and start the road to restoration. John the Baptist & Isaiah both called it GOOD news because there is HOPE & PEACE behind it.
Have you asked God to change you from the inside out recently? Confess where you've fallen short and invite him into your life. Adjust your foundation. You can always stand on God's Word!
