God Thinking LXI - Good Theology 9

"Good theology requires that your heart be changed every time God speaks to you and convicts you of sin and indiscretion.

Good theology requires you are converted from your way/ways every time God speaks.
How many times do you need to be converted!!!?
Every time you step outside of God’s will for your life.

The notion, that when a man, woman, boy or girl is born again, they relinquish their throne in humble submission to a Holy God, and seek after God with their whole body, mind, heart and soul - has been, all but eradicated, not only in the world, but in the Church as well.

Those who are constantly demanding proof from God have not relinquished the throne of their life to God.

Why do I say this? 
I’ll tell you why. 
Good theology makes for a good life.

You have been entrusted with the Word of God, and what you do with what you hear, determines how much of what you do, God is able to bless.

The only truths that you can operate in, are not the ones you have heard once or twice or a hundred times, but the ones you practice."

Note: Again I sense rebellion from many.  But the real truths, the ones that can make a measurable difference in your life, well sometimes they are uncomfortable.  When I have questioned hundreds of Christians about practicing what they have learned, almost all have told me emphatically that they do not believe they need to."
