John 16:8 NLT
And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment.

Series: Holy Spirit’s Role in Our Salvation
We ignore the role of the Holy Spirit in our salvation. The trinity is all together working on us when we are getting saved. We don’t acknowledge the Holy Spirit so often, and that is why He seems to be the silent person in the trinity. And without knowing the Holy Spirit we cannot have a relationship with Jesus or the Father!
The Holy Spirit’s job description is to convict the world of its sin, the sin of disbelief, disobedience, distrust. Just like pain is a sign that something is not right with our bodies, so is the role of the Holy Spirit in our walk with God. The convictions He brings reveals to us of our sins.
We have to allow the Holy Spirit to convict us from our sins, even when it could become painful at times. He is the first person to convict us in our journey of salvation.
The more we welcome and acknowledge the presence of the Holy Spirit, the more He will reveal sinful and ungodly areas in our lives. Our hope is that during the course of this week, we will become increasingly aware of the Holy Spirit’s work in our salvation.
If you are in a place where you don’t know if you are really saved, just open your heart to the Holy Spirit and invite Him in to do His work in you. It is the job of the Holy Spirit to reveal Jesus to you, to show you the glory of the Father, to explain the importance of baptism to you. Just allow him into your heart and just watch what He will do.
God bless you and have a great day ahead!
