The Word Of God Convicts of Sin

The Word Convicts of Sin

Maybe you’ve talked with someone about Jesus Christ, only to have them respond,
“I don’t believe the Bible.”
Or they may say,
“I have no intention of becoming a Christian,” They may say,
“It would mean turning from my sin, and I’m not ready to do that.” It is a moral issue, not an intellectual issue.

This is why some people are so reluctant to believe the Bible as The Word Of God.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 KJV
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: [4] In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

It is clearly tied to the judgment of God and the sinfulness of man.

John 12:40 KJV
He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

As you witness to people about Jesus Christ, you may encounter some who say, “I don’t believe the Bible.” When that happens, just remember that we’re not out to win arguments but to win men and women to personal faith in Jesus Christ.

That takes prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit.

John 15:4-5 NASB
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. [5] I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

So keep sharing the truth of the Bible, even with those who say they can’t believe it.

Matthew 19:26 NASB
And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Lord, help me to keep on telling others about Your Word, even those people who dismiss it in unbelief. In Jesus Name,  Amen.

Since the Holy Spirit uses the Word to convict of sin, we should be faithful to proclaim it to others.

Luke 1:37 NASB
For nothing will be impossible with God.”
