Sermons from New Covenant Community Church

Surviving and Thriving in the Moment of Truth (John 16:5-15, John 8:36)

Dick Beaumont, May 28, 2017
Part of the The Holy Spirit series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

John 16:5-15; John 8:36. Jesus tells us about one of the reasons for the Holy Spirit coming and one of the things He does is to convict. Though conviction brings discomfort, we have to view it as a thing God intends to bring us closer to Him. In this sermon, Pastor Dick Beaumont encourages us to respond rightly to conviction so that we don't block the progress that God wants to make in us and the places where He wants to use us.

John 16:5-15

But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. (ESV)

John 8:36

36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (ESV)
