Tenth I realize I can’t live convictions in my own strength
The most important conviction you must own is the fact that you and I can’t develop or live convictions in our own strength. Since I am separated from God because of my sin, I must turn to Christ who took the punishment I was due for my sin, by dying on the cross in my place, rising from the dead, and providing a way for me to be forgiven and transformed from the inside out, so I would actually want to live according to the Scripture. And even as a Christian, I was never meant to live the Christian life in my own strength, I must daily depend upon the indwelling Holy Spirit to empower me to live for God’s glory.
So, if you are going to stand for something and not fall for anything, then Christ must save you, and the Spirit must empower you.
