MOST SINNERS DON’T KNOW THE WEIGHT OF THEIR SINS, UNTIL THEY ARE CONVICTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

 

The Holy Spirit convicts the sinner of sin. The Holy Spirit is important in our evangelism because He makes the sinner to know how sinful they are (John 16:7-9). You do the preaching; the Holy Spirit does the conviction.

That is why when people say, “that man is an unbeliever but when I marry him, I will change him.” Then we say to him, “are you now the Holy Spirit?” You can’t change a person, your duty is to preach, to minister the Word; it is the duty of the Holy Spirit to convicts the sinners of their sinfulness.

Most sinners don’t know the weight of their sins, until they are convicted by the Holy Spirit. I’ve experienced that many times; I was talking to somebody some time ago and I was telling him to abstain from immoral living and all those kinds of things and I was shocked at the reply. He said, “is it a sin, is it wrong?”. Along the way, I handed him over to the Secretary to hand him over to the appropriate quarter. In further interaction, he said, “Sir, that one is a raw sinner from the world.” He said he encountered a particular picture on his page and it was a not seeable picture.

Most people don’t know the sinfulness of their sins. Some are wrong but appear sincerely right. When we were in the University in those days, a young weight lifter who was always moving recklessly, I began to preach to him. He permanently camped a woman in his hostel. When you talk to him, he will say, if his mother and father didn’t do what he’s doing, how will they give birth to him? Have you heard such a thing before? What he’s doing, is it comparable to what his father and mother…; his father and mother married legally and he was very bold.

So, it is not even the articulation of your words that convicts the sinner. The power to convict is with the Holy Spirit. For example, some people don’t see anything wrong with smoking or drinking, especially alcoholism; nothing is wrong with that.
