The Holy Spirit in Conviction of Sin

"When you preach the gospel and the Holy Spirit applies that truth in the heart, banishes self righteousness, brings conviction of sin which brings repentance and that repentance does not make any claims upon God. That repentance recognizes the justice of God, recognizes the depth of our sin and the righteousness of His punishment thereof.

That's a person who goes,

Well, my sins must be punished, either in myself or someone else.But that someone else must be a perfect savior. That someone else cannot just be a helper. That someone else must bear the entire punishment of my sins, who would do that for me?

Well, that's when you can start telling somebody about Jesus Christ."

-James White, transcribed from this message from Lane's Blog
