THE HOLY SPIRIT CONVICTS----AND SAVES!

The world has certain terms and phrases for things that we Christians know are called something else. What the world calls CONSCIENCE, we know to be The Holy Spirit. What the world calls GUILT, we know to be the CONVICTION of The Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is there to convict people, ALL PEOPLE, of their sin. That VERY uncomfortable feeling we have in the pit of our stomach or the knot we feel in our chest as we begin to do something in rebellion to God....THAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT. There is a never ending battle that takes place in all of us between our "Free Will" (Our sinful nature) and the POWER and CONVICTION of The Holy Spirit. IF you feel like you are doing something wrong, YOU MOST ASSUREDLY ARE! IF you feel like a small loving voice is trying to lead you to safety, do not go against it, THAT is The Holy Spirit, what Mark Hall (Casting Crowns) calls "The Voice of Truth", and that voice is THE VOICE OF GOD! Listen to it and follow His lead. He will never steer you wrong, HE will always step in to warn you, to save you, to lead you into God's Word. The Word of God, through the Power of The Holy Spirit, will at times upset you, yet always try to deter you and ALWAYS CONVICT YOU of your sin. He will convict you when you are WRONG, and He will convict you to the point that you are so uncomfortable that your skin is crawling. At that very moment, a believer will yield and turn, a believer will be convicted and corrected, and a believer will be SAVED from the sin they were about to enter in to. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that "No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it" 

Beloved, that WAY OUT.....IS........THE HOLY SPIRIT. Allow Him to guide you and lead you in all things.  Listen to the still small voice of God today....it is called The Holy Spirit, and He Convicts and Saves!
