convictions in the bible

One of the most powerful things about the Bible is its ability to inspire us. It’s not just a book that we read and then put away; it’s a manual for how to live our lives, and it has been for centuries.

But what does it mean to be convicted by something in the Bible? When we feel convicted, what does that actually mean? And why do we feel that way?

For a long time, I’ve been convinced that the Bible is the best book ever written.

But recently, I’ve realized how hard it is to actually find all of the passages in it that support my convictions. So I decided to make a list of those convictions and all of their Biblical references.

I hope this helps you find the same inspiration in Scripture that I have found!

There are many similarities between the Bible and the Qur’an. Both books were written by prophets, and both books are considered holy texts by their respective religions. However, there are also several important differences between these two books. These differences can help us understand how each religion interprets God’s word differently.
