As we continue our reflection on the role of the Holy Spirit in the plan of salvation, listen to the words of Jesus. "And when he comes he will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation: sin, because they do not believe in me; righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me, condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.” (Jn 16: 8-11) Having heard the truth about who Jesus is, but still refusing to accept and believe in him, is a sin. But so is knowing this truth yet not fully surrendering ourselves to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit brings us to this reality. Jesus, our righteousness, has made us righteous in the sight of God. The Holy Spirit helps us to remain righteous before the Lord by grace. Jesus, through his death and resurrection has
brought condemnation to the ruler of this world, the Devil. The Holy Spirit continues to give us the power of Jesus over the attacks of the Father of lies. Come, Holy Spirit, come! Come, that we may continue to live free from sin, to grow in righteousness and to be victorious over our enemy.
