When He Has Come

My Utmost His Highest

"When He has come, He will convict the world of sin…" (John 16:8)

Very few of us know anything about conviction of sin. We know the experience of being disturbed because we have done wrong things. But conviction of sin by the Holy Spirit blots out every relationship on earth and makes us aware of only one — “Against You, You only, have I sinned…” (Psalm 51:4). . . God does forgive, but it cost the breaking of His heart with grief in the death of Christ to enable Him to do so. The great miracle of the grace of God is that He forgives sin, and it is the death of Jesus Christ alone that enables the divine nature to forgive and to remain true to itself in doing so. . . The love of God is spelled out on the Cross and nowhere else. The only basis for which God can forgive me is the Cross of Christ. (read more) (purchase)
