Purpose of this Session
The Holy Spirit is powerfully at work in the world, bringing the message and power of the gospel to darkened hearts in a myriad of ways.
The ministry of the Holy Spirit in the world is three-fold.
It is summarized in John 16:8-11.
“And when He has come,
He will convict the world of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
The root sin of all others is unbelief. It is unbelief that sends men to hell! The Holy Spirit will convict men of their sin and turn them to Christ.
and of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
The Holy Spirit will convict us of the righteousness and Lordship of Christ, even though we do not presently see Him with our eyes.
and of judgment because the ruler of this world is judged.”
The devil and all his hosts have been stripped bare by Jesus on the cross. The Holy Spirit will reveal this truth to us, convicting us of Satan’s utter defeat and our authority over Him. He will also convict that all works, both of angels and men, will come into final judgement.
