Convictions: Do you Have Any?

I learned the hard way that this saying is true: when you stand for nothing, you fall for anything. I stood for nothing and I fell for everything, fell right into a pit of confusion and pain and despair. Til Jesus pulled me out and placed me on a firm foundation. These days, you may not always like where I stand, but there will be no doubt as to where I stand. “On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”

What do you stand on?

I appreciate someone with conviction. I have more respect for someone firmly committed to an ideology to which I am staunchly opposed than someone who claims to believe everything everyone else believes.

My challenge to you is to find out what you believe. Not what you think you believe, not what your parents or your school or your church believes, but what you really believe. Then find out why you believe what you believe. Have convictions! In a world of post-modern uncertainty, people are starving for answers.

What do you stand on?
