Peanut butter and Jelly, chocolate and coffee, brownies and ice cream--some things just come in pairs. There are biblical truths that are meant to go together, too, like fear of the Lord and wisdom, knowledge and understanding, dying to self and being raised in Christ, conviction and transformation.
Conviction is defined as firm belief; transformation is defined as change in condition. We can’t have one without the other. Humanity longs for individuality, and yet pushes for conformity. This is the enemy of transformation.
As Christ-followers, the way we live our lives should indicate that a different heart beats inside our chest. That’s transformed living. How do we move from speaking about our beliefs to living our beliefs?
