“And He, when He comes, will convict the world regarding sin, and righteousness, and judgment” – John 16:8
Where the Holy Spirit is, there will always be deep conviction of sin.
“It is His special office to convict of sin.
He shows the exceeding holiness of God.
He teaches the exceeding corruption and infirmity of our nature.
He strips us of our blind self-righteousness.
He opens our eyes to our awful guilt, folly and danger.
He fills the heart with sorrow, contrition, and abhorrence for sin–as the abominable thing which God hates.
He who knows nothing of all this, and saunters carelessly through life, thoughtless about sin, and indifferent and unconcerned about his soul–is a dead man before God! He has not the Holy Spirit.” – J.C. Ryle (1816-1900)
