Conviction

Read Romans 14.5-12

“.. each one should be fully convinced in his own mind ..” (Rom.14.5)

The message of the gospel is clear enough. The challenge is in all the circumstances of your daily life to discern how those basic gospel truths are to be applied: you are to think all these issues through prayerfully and come to a clear mind on them.

Do you think through the implications of Scripture truth for you in relation to some of the major issues facing you today – vaccines, the environment, etc?

To what extent is the way you live your life defined by your culture and traditions rather than being the result of Biblical conviction?

Prayer: Teach me Your way, O Lord. There are often so many ‘grey’ areas where it isn’t clear what I should do or think! Give me a discerning mind to know what I should do.
