"I once heard it said that conviction brings life because it points us to Jesus, while on the other hand, condemnation brings death because it makes you think you have no hope." - Fae Dunn
Is there currently a revelation in your life? If you allow it to draw you to Jesus, the Master Refiner, and you choose to be refined and make changes in your life that are positive, then you have been given life through a conviction. If you reject the revelation and choose not to make changes empowered by the Holy Spirit, then you have allowed yourself to be condemned... which will kill your spirit, your witness and your usefulness to God and others. Darkness and the spirit of Death have now been given your consent to be your constant companion.
I don't want that kind of companion, do you?
Father, help me to be ever sensitive to your gracious convicting revelations in my life and thank You for the strength, grace and wisdom to choose to make the refining changes in obedience to Your Spirit. Thank You for rebuking the evil one from me. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.
God blesses the one who reads the words of this prophecy to the church, and he blesses all who listen to its message and obey what it says, for the time is near. (Revelation 1:3 NLT)
[If you remember, Fae Dunn is our new friend we met over at Joe’s Farm Grill in Gilbert, a few weeks ago. We are thrilled that she only lives a few blocks from our park and she came to Bible study with us last Thursday evening! I can not believe that I didn’t get a picture of her. That just means she has to come back.
I’m also excited to have her devotional book, Faithful Hope, and will be reading through it and journaling as I go, as the Lord leads.]
