John 16:9 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Of sin," (peri hamartias men) "Concerning sin," ones involvement with moral lawlessness, especially the sin of unbelief, the King of all sins, incited by a covetous, carnal nature, Joh 3:18.

2) "Because they believe not on me." (hoti ou pisteuousin eis eme) "Because they believe or trust not in me," Joh 1:11-12; Joh 8:21; Joh 8:24; Joh 3:18; Joh 12:48; Pro 1:22-31. New convictions are to be wrought.

This conviction of sin, from the Holy Spirit's work, brings a conscious sense of 1) guilt, 2) shame, 3) danger, and 4) fear to every responsible sinner, such as came to Adam and Eve in Eden, and has dogged the conscience of responsible men to this day. The conscience, monitor of the soul, is God's memorex system in every man, through which the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, every lost man, Heb 3:7; Heb 4:7; Heb 2:15.
