￼”Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment… ” (John 16:7-8, NKJV)
I want this thought to go off like a bomb in your heart…
Grace convicts you of your sin by reminding you of your righteousness.
Right now, just ask the Lord to remind you of your righteousness. You know what He’ll remind you of? Not your works, efforts, trying, or failing. He’ll show you Jesus, because Jesus is your righteousness. He’ll point you to the One who hung on the cross, went down in the grave, buried your sins for eternity, rose on the third day, and reigns forever, remembering your sins no more.
That’s the Gospel. And it’s what the Holy Spirit wants to remind you of every day of your life!
