John 16:7-11 (As one condition of salvation a lost sinner MUST first be convicted of their SINS for repentance to even begin)
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
According to 1 John 1:6-10;2:1-2 a believer has this same experience through the Holy Spirit indwelling. In sin there is conviction and by prayer to our Father in Christ Jesus, our confession is heard and God forgives through Him and fellowship is renewed that was broken by sin.
Jesus Promises The Holy Spirit*** John 14:15-18
15"If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you The Comforter, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you."
