When we read something that stings and convicts us in the Bible, sometimes all we do is take a deep gasp of shock, say “Yoh I felt that” and move on.
That conviction is the Holy Spirit. How can what we read be applied to life, in the small spaces, in the hostile spaces, in the tempting spaces. In addition to this, pray to the Lord to help you live out these portions of scripture, and allow His word to transform your life. Also, it’s always a great idea to share scripture with people in your life.
