The Spirit Convicts
“And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment” John 16:8 (ESV)
The Holy Spirit transforms the human heart by bringing conviction of wrongs and assurance of right. Many hell-bound people have an intellectual ascent of right and wrong, but they block the Spirit of God from bringing them conviction. The Spirit doesn’t just point a finger at us, He also leads us to an assurance that Jesus Christ saves.
The Spirit of God doesn’t just convict of us of right and wrong, but of the assurance that the Enemy of our souls stands condemned. Knowing that we follow a victorious Savior is empowering.
Let’s pray today to welcome God’s Spirit into our life to convict us and empower us.
