The Power of Deep Convictions

The Power of Deep Convictions | KingdomNomics.comScripture: 1 Thessalonians 1:5, NIV

“…Because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.” (1 Thessalonians 1:5, NIV)

A major problem in our world is that many people lack deep convictions to govern their attitudes and life actions. In the minds of many there are no absolutes, and it is okay for each person to do as they please.

Justified Before God

Justified Before God | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Romans 10:9–10, NIV

If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” (Romans 10:9–10, NIV)

This passage is the wonderful message of salvation. It is a work of God himself who alone can do this. Other passages of Scripture confirm this truth:

My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.” (1 John 2:1–2, NLT)

Christ, the Chief Converterlator, Personified

Christ, the Chief Converterlator, Personified | KingdomNomics.com Scripture: Colossians 1:12–14, NKJV

Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

God the Creator is always creating, moving, transforming, and bringing everything into conformance with his will. He does this through his pure, unadulterated power: “God has spoken once, twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.” (Psalm 62:11, NKJV)

These verses exude POWER!

Converterlating by Investing Time, Talent, and Treasure

Converterlating by Investing Time, Talent, and Treasure | KingdomNomics.com Scripture: 2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV)

As in salvation, the transforming power of God does all of the work in the CONVERTERLATING process. It is initiated by God, continued by God, and finished by God. We are the mere instruments, vessels, or modalities for the working power of God to perform in us and through us.

Converterlator Weaponry

Converterlator Weaponry | KingdomNomics.comScripture: 1 Thessalonians 2:13 and Ephesians 6:17

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12, NIV84)

And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.” (1 Thessalonians 2:13, NIV84)

The Big Weapon of the Consumerlator

We can have the proper perspective only through the prism of the cross of Jesus Christ | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Luke 16:11, NIV

So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?” (Luke 16:11, NIV)

The CONSUMERLATOR will use many weapons to blunt our efforts as effective CONVERTERLATORS of our time, talents, and treasures.

One of the most effective weapons the CONSUMERLATOR uses is worldly wealth. Remember, the CONSUMERLATOR wants us to spend all of our time and efforts on earthly matters that are in the process of perishing. The person who buys strictly into what the world system has to offer is going to end up with nothing in eternity.

Hammer, Saw, or Screwdriver?

We are God’s workmanship | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Ephesians 2:10, NCV

God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing.” (Ephesians 2:10, NCV)

To be effective CONVERTERLATORS, we need to know how we have been individually designed and the purpose for which we have been designed.

There are all kinds of tools for building a house, including hammers, saws, and screwdrivers, just to name a few. Each one of these has been designed for a specific purpose. It is not effective to try to use a saw as a hammer or a screwdriver as a saw.

Going, Going, Gone!

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Mark 13:31, NIV) | KingdomNomics.com Scripture: Mark 13:31, NIV

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Mark 13:31, NIV)

This is an incredible statement! Everything is ultimately going to pass away. Our time, talents, and treasures will expire when we do. They will do us no good in eternity. We must use them while we are on this side of eternity.

We are like the shopper who has won a contest and is allowed to buy as many groceries as she can within a short period of time. When the time expires, the shopping spree ends.

The Compass of Life

Are your thoughts and eyes fixed on Jesus? | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Proverbs 28:26, NKJV and Judges 21:25, NKJV

He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, but whoever walks wisely will be delivered.” (Proverbs 28:26, NKJV)

In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25, NKJV)

Our point of reference is critical in becoming a CONVERTERLATOR. The above verses summarize what is wrong in our world: People refuse to acknowledge God and instead trust in their own hearts.
