The Holy Spirit is a gift to us. He is God who indwells our spirit man, and acts like nerve endings to alert us spiritually. He will alert our conscience, and convict and convince us of sinful behavior that will damage ourselves and others. If we’re satisfied with nothing more than attending church once a week, we can grow desensitized to the convicting pangs of the Holy Spirit. But if we are disciples, wholly devoted to spending time with Jesus, in his Word and in prayer, then we’ll continually and immediately recognize when we have become unclean in a particular area.
