Vital signs- Tuesday, November 9th, 2021


Convictions Give Purpose- Jesus' life was dominated by his conviction that he was sent to do the Father's will. This produced a deep awareness of his life's purpose and kept him from being distracted by the agenda of others. If you want to gain insight into the convictions Jesus held, just study all the times he used the phrase "I must." When people develop Christlike convictions, they, too, develop a sense of purpose. Conviction also has an attractive quality to it. This explains the popularity of many cults. Their beliefs are erroneous and often illogical, yet they are believed with intense conviction. In contrast, churches without clear, strong convictions will never attract the level of commitment that Christ deserves. We must burn with the conviction that the Kingdom of God is the greatest cause in the world. The insightful preacher, Vance Havner, used to say, "Jesus demands greater allegiance than any dictator that every lived. The difference is that Jesus has a right to it!"


“For when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but also with power, for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance that what we said was true. And you know of our concern for you from the way we lived when we were with you.”

‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬
