I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: John 16:7-8
The question was quite innocent. All I asked was “where does she live?” The answer was “with me.”
That seemed to be enough.
He later told me that as he was driving by himself, he couldn’t help but think about it. He admitted to always believing that living together was wrong but if he didn’t think about it or talk about it, then it was out of sight and out of mind.
It wasn’t my question that changed it, it was the conviction of the Holy Spirit. I wasn’t riding with him while he thought about these things – it was the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit wants to bring us into a closer, more holy relationship with Father. To do that, you must listen and obey what He says. You will never truly grow close to God with sin in your life.
Sin boycotts God.
I know many men and women that say they are Christian and yet are living together as if they are married. I wonder what the Holy Spirit is saying to them.
By the way, the couple are getting married!
