“But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:” John 16:7-8 NIV
First, this Advocate Jesus is referring to is the Holy Spirit. Second, and perhaps more important, we learn the role of the Holy Spirit is to PROVE the world to be in the wrong about 3 things: sin, righteousness, and judgment.
Why would I say this second point is perhaps more important than the first? Because for the longest time I thought it was my job to change my job to PROVE my wife wrong. In fact most couples that come to our practice seem to have read the same book as me. They both want to PROVE their spouse wrong!
Thank God it isn’t in my job description to prove people wrong. It is God’s job to do so. My decision is to be or not to be. Not to prove people wrong in matters of sin, righteousness, and judgement.
If I could give you a hug, hi5, or fist bump from here I definitely would. As long as you don't mind a couple typos here and there, you're MOST welcome to check in, drop a comment here and there, and make yourself at home.
