Few more thoughts about the Holy Spirit and how in many lives He seems to be absent from their relationship with God.

Now I know that is an impossibility for a person to have a walk with God without the presence of the Holy Ghost being in them. He is the only One that can lead us to Christ and cause us to realize our need to repent, yet so many today claim to know the Lord Jesus in saving grace and there is no evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit in them. Believe the precious Word of God when it speaks of this relationship has an outflow of the Holy Spirit that will be evident in every converted person’s life.

I was pondering the experience of conviction of sin that will produce true Godly sorrow, a necessary part of true repentance. It is a visitation of God the Holy Ghost to the heart and soul of a sinner that he will be troubled in such a way that it will cause brokenness and a contrite spirit in them. The sinner will experience what is described in detail in II Corinthians 7:9-11 as a repentance that will bring about salvation of the soul. In that passage there is no thrill or good felling, in fact it's everything but that. It's no fun and games to have the Holy Ghost reveal what you look like in the eyes of a thrice Holy God, seeing yourself as a transgressor and one that caused the Lord Jesus Christ to have to suffer for your sins to make a way for you to be saved. No happy time here, but a time of guilt as one has never experienced before or after salvation. It's been said of this experience of Holy Ghost conviction of sin, that some have almost lost their mind before they were gloriously converted. Here is when the sinner not only sees himself as vile as God views him, but the only remedy for his sin is to turn from them. It's a rough trip to take, but a glorious one when the Holy Spirit bears witness that it's over and you are now a son of God. The glow will show, and the life will radiate with the river that Jesus said will flow out of you, speaking of the presence of the Holy Spirit.
