How do we convince others of the need to get right with God? We can’t do it, but the Holy Spirit of God can!
When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment. John 16:8
How do we convince someone today that Jesus, who lived two thousand years ago, is relevant today? How do we convince a sinner of his or her sin? How do we convince others of the need to get right with God? We can’t do it! But the Holy Spirit of God can!
What impossible tasks these would be without the Holy Spirit. My wise mother said to me years ago, “Anne, it’s your job to make your husband happy, and it’s the Holy Spirit’s job to make him good.”
Before you open your mouth to speak for Christ, before you ever begin your day to live for Christ — pray! Pray that the Holy Spirit will take what you give out, what you live out, and use it to convict others of their need to be right with God.
