We need to be satisfactorily reproved and convicted of our natural state before our depravity can fully come to the light.
Then, are we more prepared to truly walk in the light as He is in the light.
So dark and obscured is our nature that our conscience cannot be relied upon to make accurate moral distinctions; provide safe, moral guidance; or to engage in judicial or corrective decisions without guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus died to save us from our sins.
One of the glorious elements of our salvation is the sending of the comforter (our righteousness and holy advocate).
And when He is come,
He will reprove the world of sin,
and of judgment.
When we are transformed by the renewing of our mind, God expects us to prove what is acceptable and perfect in His eyes through good judgment and actions in our lives.
He provides a clarity of understanding and enables us to reflect His will when we present our bodies as holy and acceptable, living sacrifices.
The Holy Spirit is free to do His work and calls us to rise to the heights of this heavenly calling;
do justly, and to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with our God.
I pray that God enables
or keeps your heart
So He can have His full work in your life.
