FAITH CAPSULE: Do you have a conscience before God?
Do you have a conscience that can access you to the presence of God?
Conscience can be described as an awareness of right and wrong to guide actions to do right.
A good conscience is an action that is before God and all to see.
God sees all actions as 1 Samuel 2:3 testifies, “…For the Lord is the God of knowledge; And by Him, actions are weighed.” (1 Samuel 2:3)
What is your conscience before God?
What does it mean to have a good conscience before God in the journey of life?
The inner sense of doing right according to the word of God is a good conscience.
Having a good conscience before God is living obediently before God as commanded for all to love.
One with a good conscience will not fail or falter from finding God.
The commandment of God for all is to love one and other.
To love all is possible for only one with the understanding and knowledge of the love of God.
It is not possible to love all others except you love God indeed and in truth! 1 John 4:8 says it all, “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”
Do you love God?
Do you love all?
Bible records, “For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:14)
Among the reasons for the commandment of God for all is to love from a GOOD CONSCIENCE. 1Timothy 1:5-6 admonishes, “Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk.”
Having a good conscience is having God in your conscience, that will mark you for God in your journey of life.
Among all of the will of God is the purpose of the commandment from a good conscience.
Do you have a good conscience in all your ways before God?
Having love from a good conscience comes with action and is not hidden from God.
Having a good conscience is the sense of doing right but not doing wrong before God. It is a good conscience that governs thoughts and actions.
Conscience is what convict man to turn from wrong.
One with no conscience will live life with pride consciously or unconsciously, the evidence of the lack of love as commanded by God.
Conscience is responsible for conviction.
The Bible points out Pharisees as an example of the lack of good conscience when they approached Jesus for judgment over a woman caught in the act of adultery. The need for good conscience for the Pharisees was in the response of Jesus, “Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one…” (John 8:9)
All should strive for a good conscience, not become a victim of a lack of love as commanded in the word of God.
Prayer for today: Ask God to enable you with having a conscience.
