Convicted of Righteousness

Latest Growing in Grace program is available for download. In Christ, we have a brand new identity. The Bible says that in Him we've been perfected, and we are holy, righteous and complete in Him. This week Mike and Joel talk about how the unbelieving world had to be convicted of sin (see John 16:8-11, Romans 3:19-20) in order to come to Christ, but now that we're in Christ we're convicted of righteousness - because that's who we are! When we sin, we are simply not being who we (already truly) are, and the more we're convinced, and convicted, of our true identity as the righteousness of God, the more we'll live as who we really are. All of this is based upon the finished work of Jesus and the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. It's all Him, not us!


  1. Another good episode always on message, does your partner have a blog???

  2. Leonard,

    Mike doesn't have a blog. I think it would be great if he did, but I think it's just not his thing.
