Righteousness and Judgement

"And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment." John 16.8

A person convicted by the Holy Spirit recognises his sin and immediately abandons it. From that moment on, he begins to walk in righteousness. In other words, he begins to do what is right and live under the discipline of God's Kingdom. In regards to judgement, his behaviour towards others is exemplary, because he does not condemn, criticise, or judge them.
This is the Work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those who are faithful to Him.
