Leaders embrace conviction

As leaders, it is essential to differentiate between conviction and condemnation. These two concepts are not interchangeable.

Conviction is a product of the Holy Spirit, while condemnation comes from Lucifer. The Holy Spirit convicts us to prevent isolation and separation, which are natural responses when we feel ashamed and guilty. In fact, when Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, their first response was to hide themselves from God.

Conviction on the other hand aims to restore our relationship with our Heavenly Father.

As leaders following Christ, we must learn how to bounce back from our mistakes. Forget trying not to fall. It is guaranteed. You and I will make mistakes, we will fall.

However, we should focus on mastering the ability to bounce back into God’s loving arms when we stumble, not to bounce away from Him.

Condemnation encourages us to bounce away from God, and this is never a solution. Although we may feel like hiding from God when we disappoint Him or make mistakes, He never rejects us. Never.

Therefore, it is crucial to remember to bounce back into His embrace and not away from Him.

So, as a question to ponder, why do you keep on bouncing away from God when you fall, instead of bouncing back into His loving arms?
