Conviction

“We must see that we are convicted and condemned, with the rope around our neck, before we will weep for joy that Christ has pardoned us.”

~ Charles Spurgeon

Absolutely true, AND the note of caution is that we don’t try and manipulate people into conviction, going ahead of the Spirit, rather, using the Word of God appropriately and respectfully.

The Sword of the Spirit is more like a caring surgeon’s scalpel than a sledgehammer.
