The Convictor of Holy Things
John 16:8-11 (ESV)
8 And when he[Holy Spirit] comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment:
9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me;
10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
Three important tasks of the Holy Spirit are
(1) convicting the world of its sin and calling it to repentance
(2) revealing the standard of God’s righteousness to anyone who believes, because Christ is no longer physically present on earth and
(3) demonstrating Christ’s judgment over Satan .
Have you been convicted, revealed by the Holy Spirit of sin in your life or something you should not be doing?
Or maybe there is something you are suppose to do and haven’t done it.
Have you been shown or taught by the Holy Spirit , God’s holy standards of living?
And do you know that there is going to be a judgment one day?
