What are some Bible verses that address the Holy Spirit's role in convicting believers of sin after they've already been saved?

I'm not talking about being convicted of the need to be saved. I want to find a verse or verses that talk about how the Holy Spirit keeps convicting believers of sin once they've been saved.

Mini Frederick Thomas Rom 3:4 ...let God be true...
Here is a thought that came to me in Acts 5 verse 3:
Act 5:3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 
Act 5:4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? And after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? Why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? Thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 

The Holy Spirit had been given us to GUIDE us into truth.
Joh 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 

"Guide" = If it is the work of the Holy Spirit to guide you He will interrupt your wrong thinking and your wrong intentions and you wrong planning’s and your wrong understandings.

For a Christian to lie, he will have to converse with the Holy Spirit. Going against the conviction or correction of the Holy Spirit, who also tries to direct you to be truthful in your doings, but you can persist to continue against the Holy Spirit's conviction and instructions.

The Holy Spirit's involvement in Christians lives:
Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 

"Grieve not the Holy Spirit" must mean you are doing something in opposition to the Holy Spirit's guide for you.

Seal of ownership, you’re God's property and God will protect you even against yourself. (2 Cor 12:7)
God Bless

"But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2Corinthians 3:18)

Like Isaiah, when we behold Him as He truly is we see ourselves as we truly are, and all we can say is, "woe is me!" Our sins and iniquities are exposed so very clearly in the light of His glory as revealed by the Holy Spirit. "Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts." (Isaiah 6:5).
