Why Personal Christian Conviction matters

Why Personal Christian Conviction Matters

As you walk the Christian faith, build your conviction on God and his Words. If you do not build firmly on them, when life throws pressure on you, compromise would come as the best option.

If you don’t stand for something; you will fall for anything. In times and seasons where Christians live, it is quite imperative to have your personal Christian conviction. You must have the understanding of the word of God and be able to connect with your father in heaven. I will link this topic with a story in the Bible.

Going through the Old Testament in the book of Numbers, I realized that Aaron would always act on the instruction given to Moses by God. Moses receives the first-hand information from God and passes it to Aaron, who executes it.

At a certain point on the journey to Canaan, Moses went up the mount to meet with God, leaving Aaron and God’s people. Within space of forty days that Moses was absent, under the leadership of Aaron, the children of Israel went into national idolatry: worshipping the golden calf. You begin to wonder and ask questions; did he ever have conviction about the God that brought them out of Egypt or the pressure from the people that made him yield? Not sure what his reasons maybe, but men of conviction would stand even in the face of a fiery furnace.

Have you come to an in-depth understanding through personal revelation and study of God’s word his demands from you as a Christian?

Do not just stand on what your preacher or prophet says like Aaron. Go to God, study his word personally and hear what God demands from you as a Christian. This is not to downplay congregational teachings from anointed ministers of God but to emphasize the need for a personal relationship with God. Having firsthand information from God would help you stand firm even when the storms of life hit hard against the boat of your life.

Know God and his word on a personal level not just congregational level.

  1. Nice write up…many people are falling today because their conviction is only based on what pastor says, rather than what God says. That is why when pastor fall they fall too. May God help us to know Him more.
