For a number of years now the work of the Holy Spirit has been a favorite topic in evangelical circles. The Spirit's delight in using the preaching of frail men, his work of exposing the sin of the human heart, and his pouring of the balm of the gospel into hearts wounded by sin's conviction - these are themes not often discussed in the current craze for "signs and wonders". But as this sermon on John 16:8 makes clear, these are the genuine marks of the Spirit's work that all believers should long to see in the church.
Robert Murray M'Cheyne, the preacher behind the sermon, experienced first-hand what it was like when the Holy Spirit displayed these signs of his presence. Despite the fact that he died before he was 30, M'Cheyne witnessed authentic revival, where such signs were manifest in abundance.
This sermon is essential reading for all who long to experience the Spirit's exposure of the human soul through the preaching of the Word, and the deep contrition and unbounded joy he brings through his revelation of Christ's work on the cross.

Robert Murray McCheyne (1813 - 1843), has had a tremendous impact not only on the people of his generation but through his writings ever since. He died in his thirtieth year and in the seventh year of ministry while he was the pastor of St Peter's Free Church. His epitaph describes him as a man who 'was honoured by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness into the path of life'.
