Convicting consciences.

One effect of the Law: it brings 34:19–21 the knowledge of sin, convicts the conscience, and makes the wrath of God understandable as the just consequence of sin. Use the Law to reach the lost as Jesus did. (See Mark 10:17 for an example of Jesus using the Law.)

“When the sinner sees the awful consequences of breaking the Law of God—that he cannot escape the certainty of judgment—he will see his need to put on the Lord Jesus Christ. When we preach future punishment by the Law, the sinner comes to Christ solely to flee from ‘the wrath to come.’” Charles Spurgeon

    Hi Ray
    I love the daily evidence emails, but i have a question. In “Convicting Consciences”, posted on January 22, you mentioned 34:19-21. What book of the Bible are you referring to?
    God bless you today
