The Spirit Convicts
“When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment” John 16:8 (NIV)
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 for being wrong, He also motions a finger to us to lead us to an assurance that Jesus Christ saves.
The Spirit of God doesn’t just convict 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 and the convictions from Spirit of God are encouraging.
Let’s pray today to welcome God’s Spirit into our life to convict us and empower us.
