Have you ever wondered, “What does the Bible say about ___________?” 

We all make choices every day that impact ourselves and everyone else around us.
The real question is, are we living in His best for us,
or are we living in the Gray Areas?

THE HEART OF CONVICTIONS

PS MONTE | 7/8/2018

SERMON NOTES

PHILIPPIANS 2:12-13 NKJV “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is GOD who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”

HOW DO I WORK OUT MY OWN SALVATION?

Maintaining your salvation is a personal responsibility that’s defined by your choices

“But, I like __________, and doesn’t Jesus want me to be happy?”

PROVERBS 14:12 NLT “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death”

GOD gives us the choice to choose relationship or separation

The more we trust His Character, the deeper our relationship with Him grows

JAMES 4:8a NLT “Come close to GOD, and GOD will come close to you!”

CONVICTIONS SHARPEN MY FOCUS

PROVERBS 27:17 NLT “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”

Jesus is the Friend who sticks closer than a brother

Convictions aren’t bondage… they’re real Freedom!

ROMANS 8:31, 33a NLT “What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If GOD is for us, who can ever be against us?”

Who dares accuse us whom GOD has chosen for his own?

No one—for GOD himself has given us right standing with himself.

Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us…!

Choose relationship… choose convictions… reject condemnation!

ROMANS 8:38-39 NLT “And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from GOD’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrowindeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of GOD that is revealed in Christ Jesus our LORD.”

NEXT STEP
