Acts 2:37 ‘When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart!’
In response to the teaching about Christ, the Holy Spirit brings deep conviction on the people. It says that they were ‘cut to the heart’! In the original Greek it literally means ‘severely troubled and made sorrowful.’ It was as if their hearts were pierced. They were struck to their very core.
1 Thessalonians 1:5 ‘…. our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction.’
The Holy Spirit and this aspect of ‘deep conviction’ have a correlation.
Acts 2:37 ‘When they heard this, they came under deep conviction!’ (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
When the Holy Spirit is allowed to touch our hearts and lives, it is a deep and meaningful experience that has the power to change our lives from deep within us.
