Convicts

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

John 16:8-9
” And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me;”

Without the Holy Spirit’s convection we would be totally unaware of our sin and separation from God. It is the work of the Holy Spirit that makes us aware of how sinful and far away from God we are. Human nature is full of pride and self-righteousness. We think our way is the best and only way. The Holy Spirit works in us to show us our sin and brings us to our knees before Jesus. Our question is are we so locked up in our pride and self-righteousness that we refuse to listen to him?
