Conviction is the sovereign work of the Holy Spirit! He it is that comes to prove the guilty in his sin to the end that he might turn from his sin and in so turning to lay hold on the Lord Jesus Christ by faith. Conviction is an awesome thing, a terrifying thing, a painful thing, a sobering thing, an uncomfortable thing, a humbling thing, and a shameful thing. It is here, where so many professions are made by God's people - promises to turn over a new leaf, to forsake a particular sin, to go on in more serious endeavor in the Christian walk. Yet, as we know, conviction does not abide forever!! Sadly for many, when true conviction fades, their well-meaning professions fade with it!! Brethren, this ought not to be!!
This message challenges the believer to lay hold on God by faith, to do what one said in the heat of conviction and to make good those broken professions!!
