“And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged” — John 16:8-11
1. Its Necessity
In prayer for the Holy Spirit’s leadership as to the need of our hearts, I have been impressed to give a series of messages on the theme: the saving work of the Holy Spirit, specifically, in the salvation of the saints.
