GETTING IT RIGHT
“And when He comes, He will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment.” John 16:8 Jesus taught that it would be the work of the Holy Spirit to convict the world of sin. Without the Holy Spirit, we would still be in darkness, dead, living in ignorance, and the list goes on. We become spiritual because of the Spirit.
The Puritan, Thomas Goodwin, said that it is the Holy Spirit who “takes all the pains with us.” This, and nothing less, is his work in conversion. It is for us who believe to wonder, to adore, and to know ourselves as new creatures in Christ. We need to make it our daily goal to live with the Spirit’s help, and what has been wrought in us by the Spirit’s power. True conversion is known by the new quality of life that it produces.
Conversion is the most significant thing that ever happens to any human being. It makes God our focus, Christ our glory, the Spirit our life, and heaven our home forever. And it is the Holy Spirit himself who effects this union, sustains it by his indwelling presence, makes it fruitful in Christlike living, and who will one day finish his transformation by giving us new bodies to match our renewed hearts.
The work of the Holy Spirit in our conversation includes our new birth (John 3), our new creation (2 Corinthians 2:1-5), our new life (Romans 6) and our new self (Ephesians 4).
