Can you imagine what it would be like to be a superhero?
Superheroes stand up for what was right—even when the situation is dangerous or scary. Their conviction drives them to find the courage to stand up to evil, even when no one else seems to care or stands by petrified in fear.
That’s why we’re taking the months of June and July to discover what it means to Stand Up: Get in the Story as we learn more about conviction.
Conviction is standing for what’s right, even when others don’t. Let’s take Jesus for example. Even for Jesus, the Son of God, it wasn’t always popular to do the right thing. No matter what it was that Jesus needed to do, He did it because it was the right thing to do.
Jesus was able to live with conviction because He knew the will of His Father, and that gave Him strength and courage. In the same way, God has given us the ability to know what is right and the ability to do it. You see, when we are fueled by God’s character, we will stand up for the things that matter to God."
