The “Four Cs” of a Spiritual Diamond

Conviction = the degree to which one knows and believes the Word of God.

Commitment = the degree to which one consistently acts on that knowledge and belief.

Courage = the degree to which one is able to persevere in the face of trial or difficulty.

Character = the degree to which one is conformed to the image of God’s perfect Son, Jesus Christ.

Let’s all strive to be spiritual diamonds of unshakable conviction, unwavering commitment, unflinching courage and Christlike character! For a diamond... is forever!

He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. Romans 4:20-21

But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18

And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Malachi 3:17 ♥
