Acts: Life In The Spirit
How To Deal With Conviction
As we take a look at how Peter’s listeners responded when they were faced with their own sin and guilt, we will see at least 3 steps that can apply to our own lives.
I. Get Right
The sword of God’s word, when delivered in the power of the Holy Spirit can cut to the heart.
According to Peter, we need to repent, because God is the One who is disturbing us, convicting us, and making us see our need to get right with Him!
II. Get Clean
That is why we say His blood washes away our sins.
III. Get Filled
Luke’s references to the Holy Spirit usually include both the indwelling Spirit, whom we receive at salvation, and the empowering Spirit, whom we receive when we are filled with the Holy Spirit.
Get right! Get clean! Get filled! Folks, we need to be filled with the Holy Spirit! We need to stay filled with the Holy Spirit!
