Encyclical Formation 1
The Holy Spirit ‘convinces the world concerning sin’.
Dominum Et Vivificantem (DV), 27
“When Jesus foretells the coming of the Holy Spirit and promises “I will send him to you,” in the very same context he adds: “And when he comes, he will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment.” The same Counselor and Spirit of truth is foretold as the one who “will convince the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgement.”
Would you agree sin is ‘a rejection of Christ’s mission’? Contemplate on how sin is turning away from God. Jesus sends us the Spirit to convince us that His mission, not sin, is how God desires us to live. Today, seek the Spirit’s counsel so you have greater faith in the Gospel message and how grace can transform sin that challenges you today.
Pray: Come Holy Spirit. Counsel me in salvation for my life.
