26 January: Exodus 7-8, John 16, Psalm 26
- To his grieving friends, Jesus affirms that it's to their advantage for him to leave them. Why? Because the Holy Spirit (another paraclete or advocate) will come and "convict" (or expose, reprove — elencho in Greek) the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment. And so He does. His convicting work has brought all of us in the body to repentance and salvation.
