A man without the Holy Spirit is like a blind man. He may not know it, but that is what blindness is all about. A blind man cannot see light and beauty. It is the same thing in the realm of the Spirit. A blind man in the realm of the Spirit is one who doesn’t know or understand spiritual things; he cannot see the things of the Spirit.
One very important aspect of the ministry of the Spirit is that he causes us to see and John 16:8 substantiates this: “and when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment”.
The word ‘reprove’ is the same as ‘convict’ and it embraces a number of Biblical expressions in its meaning. Originally, it’s derived from two Latin terms meaning ‘cause to see’. In the New Testament, the words ‘reproof’, ‘conviction’ and ‘illumination’ are used to communicate the ministry of the Holy Spirit whereby He causes the individual to ‘see’; He causes him to understand truth.
When the Holy Spirit comes into your life, you will no longer be blind because He will cause you to see. Every Christian needs to depend on the Holy Spirit to help him understand the truth and respond to it accordingly. There can be no Christianity without the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
