The Holy Spirit Changes Minds
e [the Holy Spirit] comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness.”
John 16:8, NIV
Jesus Christ was crucified as a criminal, as a blaspheming heretic, as an enemy of Rome and of God. What changed the world’s opinion of Him? Why does He go down in history as a good Man? Or a great Prophet? Why do people put their trust in a crucified Jew two thousand years after He lived on earth? The change in opinion was brought about by none other than the Holy Spirit Who convinced the world of the truth – that Jesus Christ was not only crucified, but that He rose from the dead! He’s alive! Jesus announced to His disciples that “when He [the Holy Spirit] comes, He will convict the world of guilt . . . in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer” (16:8-10, NIV). The proof of the righteousness of Jesus Christ is in the fact that God didn’t leave Him on the cross, bearing your sin and mine, but raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand, placing all authority in the universe under His feet!
Who do you know who needs to change his mind about Jesus? Pray for that person.
May God bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May God make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
May the grace the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen!
