Mrs. Ted read me this quote from the first lesson. I like the insight it offers into how God works:
God never points out sin for the purpose of instilling hopelessness, guilt, and poor self-esteem. God convicts of sin for two major reasons:
God's whole point in expending His endless energies on humans is to have a people for His name. All that He does is to that end.
- To convict the lost of sin and offer the gift of salvation.
- To convict the saved of sin and offer the gift of restoration.
