CONVICTION TO CHANGE

Most folks, after they have been convicted their whole lifestyle changes. For example, being convicted and going to prison in society takes away your freedom. However, when the Holy Spirit convicts you it gives you freedom and liberates you. What a difference or contrast between the world’s way and God’s way. In John 4:29 after the woman at the well had an encounter with Jesus, she was convicted to change; which liberated her so much so that she couldn’t contain herself. She felt so free she wanted others to experience the joy and freedom she felt, so she invited others to come see a man who knows all things.

If most people would see God’s omnipresence and omniscience would they continue to do wrong? If the veil of darkness is lifted and they choose to remain in darkness then there is nothing anyone can do because the fact is you can’t hide anything from God. He knows your past, present and future, and He knew you from before you were born as Jeremiah 1:5 shows us. As believers we all should be excited, willing and able to introduce others to Jesus who saves us from the curse of death.

Once you taste and see that the Lord is good as Psalm 34:8 tells us then we will never go back to our old lifestyle and as 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Galatians 6:15 tells us old things will pass away and no longer interest us; everything is new and of God. Once we taste and see how good God is we will follow Romans 12:1-2 and present our bodies as a living sacrifice that is holy and acceptable unto God. Once you taste and see as Psalm 119:103 says, His words will be so sweet to your taste buds that you will have a desire for more and continue wanting more. Jesus told His disciples in John 4:32 that He had food to eat of which they did not know because they didn’t understand that once you taste and see that God is good (and you do His will) you won’t hunger for physical food because you are filled up with spiritual food that is far better because it is fulfilling and lasting.

Your testimony could save someone as John 4:39 shows us. Tell someone how God is good to you because you are alive. Encourage them to not only believe in Jesus, but to confess Him as Lord and Savior. Refer to the Salvation page for more information on leading someone to Christ.
