THE CONVICTION OF SIN BY GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT John Gill
THE CONVICTION OF SIN BY GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Spirit of God is a Spirit of conviction. He convinces men of sin, original, actual, of all their sins of thought, word, and deed, of the demerit of sin, and of the inability of men to make atonement for it. He brings God’s elect to such a sense of sin as to loath it, and themselves for it, to blush and be ashamed of it, and to have a godly sorrow for it, which works repentance unto salvation.
FAITH IN CHRIST TOUCHES THE EMOTIONS. I cannot imagine having faith without it reaching my emotions. But faith is much more than emotionalism. Faith is the believer’s way of life. Religious emotionalism is but a covering for spiritual death.
