Conviction Equals Love
“I was reading my Bible one time, and God brought to my mind someone who I had mistreated. I tried not to think about it. I tried to put it out of my mind, but the next day it came back to me.”
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: God’s call to repentance may not always be a pleasant experience.
“It got to the point that my conscience was bothering me so much I couldn’t pray or think about God or anything without this coming back to the forefront of my mind. So after I finally made it right, I was so relieved.”
Nancy: When we’re experiencing conviction of sin, it’s not necessarily fun or easy, but it does show us something important—that God loves us.
Sin leads to destruction, but God doesn’t want that for us. He’ll even wound us temporarily if that’s what it takes to move us to action.
If you’re experiencing conviction about some sin, it’s an evidence that God loves you. There’s no better time to respond than right now.
