    Conviction quotes by:    

No man hath a right to claim God as his Father, unless he feeleth in his soul, and believeth, solemnly, through the faith of God's election, that he has been adopted into the one family of which is in heaven and earth, and that he has been regenerated or born again.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon

When we deal seriously with our sins, God will deal gently with us.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon
    Source: Commentary, Psalm 51:2.

You cannot preach conviction of sin unless you have suffered it. You cannot preach repentance unless you have practiced it. You cannot preach faith unless you have exercised it. True preaching is artesian; it wells up from the great depths of the soul. If Christ has not made a well within us, there will be no outflow from us.

    Author: Charles Spurgeon

Having convictions can be defined as being so thoroughly convinced that Christ and His Word are both objectively true and relationally meaningful that you act on your beliefs regardless of the consequences.

    Author: Josh McDowell
    Source: Beyond Belief to Convictions, p. 22

Whenever God reproves us, not only in words, but in reality, and reminds us of our sins, we do not so suffer for one fault as to be free for the future, but that until we from the heart repent, He ever sounds in our ears these words, Still God will contend with you: and a real contention is meant.

    Author: John Calvin
    Source: Commentary, Jeremiah 2:9.

I do not understand how a man can be a true believer, in whom sin is not the greatest burden, sorrow and trouble.

    Author: John Owen

Unless we are thoroughly convinced that without Christ we are under the eternal curse of God, as the worst of His enemies, we shall never flee to Him for refuge.

    Author: John Owen
