How You Can Have A Good Conscience

May 9

One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.

Romans 14:5

You’ve probably heard the old statement: “Let your conscience be your guide.” Well, while there’s a lot of truth in that, we need to be careful about always following our conscience because it can become corrupted if it’s not informed by biblical wisdom.

One example I like to use for conscience is a sundial. A sundial can only be useful when it receives light from the sun. At 2 a.m. when it’s pitch dark outside, a sundial can’t tell you anything. In fact, it might even tell you something wrong if there are other sources of light around.

A conscience can only utilize the light that it’s been given. As a Christian, if your conscience has been enlightened by the Scriptures and the Spirit of God, then you can rely upon it and let it guide you in your decisions. But if you haven’t spent time letting God’s light guide your conscience, then how can you be sure it’s reliable?

The key to keeping a good conscience in your daily life is twofold: 1) stay in God’s Word and allow His Spirit to guide you, and 2) be fully convinced what you’re doing is right. When you take those two simple steps, you’ll experience the blessing of a good conscience!

KEEP A GOOD CONSCIENCE BY STAYING IN GOD’S WORD AND BEING CONVINCED YOU’RE DOING THE RIGHT THING!
