Has God convicted you on certain things in your life – certain things that He wants just you to do???
He has convicted us to homeschool our children, he led us to it and is definitely leading and guiding us as we carry this out.
Now we would say that all Christian families should homeschool, we see this as a biblical commandment, but it is not our job to tell or judge others for what they do or how they live.
Matthew 7:1-2 Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgement you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
When we read the scriptures certain things can just jump out at you and scream, do this, this is what God wants for you.
Has God told you to follow the laws of the old testament? Has he led you to not eat pork or prawns? Has He led you to wear head coverings or to worship on Saturday not Sunday?
That’s great if He has, but do you put your convictions onto others.
What if someone invited you for a meal and didn’t realise that you didn’t eat pork. Would you make a fuss about it and refuse to eat the meal served to you? Or would you graciously accept the food placed in front of you.
My point is whatever God has convicted us of is our conviction. It isn’t our conviction to put onto others. It isn’t our job to judge and tell others how to live.
God touches each of us in different ways and we should accept these differences and allow others to live the way God wants them too.
We have close friends who don’t eat certain things and worship on a Saturday and I have been blessed about how they live these convictions and how they quietly go about their lives, honouring Gods plans for them. Just being around them teaches me so much.
Eating pork or not eating pork isn’t a salvation issue.
Homeschooling or not homeschooling isn’t a salvation issue.
Wearing headcoverings or not isn’t a salvation issue.
Believing in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and being in a personal relationship with Him is a salvation issue.
1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
