When the Holy Spirit Convicts You…

“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word.”

Acts 10:44

Ponder This

Do you know what Holy Spirit conviction is? It’s when the Holy Spirit of God speaks to you and the Holy Spirit says, “That’s true.” How do you know Jesus is the Son of God? How do you know the Scriptures are true? How do you know those who say Jesus has transformed their lives are really transformed? Because the Holy Spirit of God convicts and confirms it.

I’ve had people tell me, “You would make a good salesman.” I don’t know whether I would or not. But I don’t want to be a salesman when it comes to the Gospel. I’m not just trying to argue you into signing on the dotted line. I want the Holy Spirit of God to convict you of these things that I’ve preached, and the Holy Spirit of God will. I’m not dependent upon eloquence, logic, or personal magnetism. All is in vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down.

  • When have you experienced the conviction of the Holy Spirit?
  • How does this give you boldness to share the truth with others?
