Many Things To Say To You

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.” – Jesus (John 16:12)

What Jesus has to say and reveal is never exhausted.

However, revelation is only made to a mind which can accept it.

In Power, In the Holy Spirit, and With Full Conviction

For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction.” – 1Thes. 1:5

Man’s word alone cannot do it.

Not Redeemed With

You were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” – 1 Pet. 1:18-19

Only Jesus redeems.

There is Liberty

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” – 2 Cor. 3:17

Liberty is found only where the Spirit of the Lord is.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is not, there is no Liberty.

There is no grief which the Holy Spirit cannot relieve! That divine Comforter knows so well how to get at the secret springs of our sorrow, and to put the comfort right into the spring itself–that there can never be a grief which can elude Him, or which can baffle His skill.” – C.H. Spurgeon

His Favor Is For Life

“For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.” – Psa. 30:5

Never was faith in the Divine love more beautifully expressed.

Convict the World Regarding Sin

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)
