My Conscience

Our conscience is a great tool for God to use to train us, guide is, and teach us. The Holy Spirit indwells us at the point of conversion. Romans 8:9. “But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.”. One of the key activities of the Holy Spirit in us is to convict us of sin. John 16:8 ” And He, (the Holy Spirit )when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment;” As a true believer in Jesus I hunger and thirst for righteousness, I want to become increasingly more righteous. That desire is because of the Holy Spirit in my life. Many because they think the feeling of guilt is bad, begin when they feel convicted to justify, blame, and compare in an attempt to feel better about themselves. What happens is that they put callouses on their own conscience, and they feel less and less guilt. 1 Timothy 4:2. “by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,” What we ought to do is increase our sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s working, so that we know more accurately when we aren’t pleasing the lord with our behavior. Psalms 51:17. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.”

Romans 8:9. “But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.”
