The Holy Spirit Speaks to All

Description

The Holy Spirit convicts us all to love God and obey His commands

When [the Holy Spirit] comes, he’ll expose the error of the godless world’s view of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:8, MSG)

In earlier devotions, we focused on how the Holy Spirit convicts Christians about their sins and the need to get right with God. But what is most amazing to me is that the Holy Spirit convicts everyone, even those who are not believers. You may be a skeptic or even completely disinterested. Regardless, the Holy Spirit has led you to this devotional today.

Sometimes the Holy Spirit convicts nonbelievers when they hear of God’s love for them through Jesus Christ. Sometimes He convicts nonbelievers of the need to surrender and give their hearts and lives to God. And when that occurs, it becomes the most crucial moment of decision making in your life. It is a decision to either keep doing things your way or to begin doing them God’s way. The Holy Spirit convicts, but you must decide whether to give your life to God through the person of Jesus Christ. If you do that, then the Holy Spirit will come and dwell within you and give you an inner desire to obey the commands of God.

It all begins with the fact that God has first loved us through Jesus Christ. Christ is the reason we want to love Him back and obey His commands. This is what the Holy Spirit convicts us all to do.
