"I like the way Al Mohler begins his leadership book. “Convictions are not just simple beliefs that we have; these are the certainties that have a hold on us ”. Christians are called to lead in proclaiming the gospel message which not only condemns the sinner, but also makes us responsible to our Lord Jesus Christ. We must stand firm in the convictions which strengthen our faith and guide us in the spiritual warfare whose victory is in sight. Stay steadfast, strong, and faithful in the Word of God. »
