“And when He comes, will convict the world regarding sin,…regarding sin, because they do not believe in Me (John 16:8,9).

The role of the Holy Spirit is to convict. That is, to convince, expose, or reveal the person and work of the resurrected Christ, and the redemptive purposes of God fulfilled through his life and ministry. While all sin is an affront to God, the greatest wrong in the world is the rejection of the only begotten Son of God. The internal urge to follow Jesus results not from the compulsion of the human conscience but the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
