Conviction is Pointed and Spiritually Powerful
Acts 7:54 (KJB) When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.
Cut to the heart, that is one grave spiritual wound created by words.
When a person is cut to the heart he is injured in the depths of his soul. It is not a physical blood gushing wound but a spiritual infliction inducing great pain by the truth filled words of God. This kind of wound is necessary for salvation of the heart and for growing and maturing spiritually.
When a man or woman is cut to the heart they are condemned and convicted by God about the presence of sin in their life. Conviction is God’s spiritual poking and prodding tool for the express purpose of salvation and inciting spiritual change and growth inside the heart of a man.
When a lost man is confronted with the Truth of God it can often incite rage and ridicule. However, when a man or woman of God is met with the Truth of God, he or she desires to agree with God about sin at work in their life.
