The Holy Spirit Conviction

In John 16:8, Jesus says the Holy Spirit will come to do three things.  To convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.  He said the Holy Spirit will convict the world of sin because they do not believe in Jesus Christ.  All over the planet the Holy Spirit is speaking to people of every nation, creed and color about their sin.  Today 200,000 people from all over the world will give their lives to Christ.  Yet we need to pray that a revival will come to our country of Canada.  The Holy Spirit will convict of righteousness because Jesus has gone back to the Father.  You and I have become His representatives and ambassadors to our world.  We have been given the privilege and responsibility to witness and live for Him in our world.  We do that by how we live.  Our words are hollow if we do not walk the walk.  Talk is cheap if not follow by action.  Lastly, the Holy Spirit will convict of judgment.  Jesus said that the ruler of this world has been judged and so have all his followers.  Satan is the ruler of this world.  World means society with its values, goals and rules.  The world promotes, materialism, pride and pleasure.  It calls people to itself everyday and they follow blindly to their destruction.  The Holy Spirit convicts the world of these things.  Sooner or later people find out that materialism, pride and pleasure become hollow and meaningless.  We must be ready to tell and show them there is a better way.  A way that leads to eternal and abundant life.  The Holy Spirit will do His job we must be ready to do ours.  So today say to the Holy Spirit, wherever you lead, whatever you want me to do, or be I will.  I want to be your instrument Lord to touch my world for you.  When you do that you will be use for God.  For His praise and glory.
