Listen to Him

Have you ever been amazed by what your friends can see that you cannot? I know I have. They will say something like, "You're overreacting," or, "Can't you see, he's a jerk!" Sometimes you cannot see what is really going on because you are to close to the situation. However, if you take a step back and look at everything, you usually find that they are right. It is easy to get so caught up in something that you cannot see the bigger picture. The same is true of the Holy Spirit! He convicts us of sins and bad choices in our life that we often overlook.
John 16:7-11
But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.
Jesus himself said it, the Spirit is here to convict us of sin, and Satan now stands condemned! We can be free of our sin through Christ Jesus. Be willing to give it up for His sake.

In Him,
