The Conscience

For if the blood of bulls and of goats . . . sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh;

how much more shall the blood of Christ, . . .

purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Hebrews 9:13-14 

To have a guilty conscience is an experience. Psychologists may define it as a guilt complex and may seek to rationalise away the sense of guilt; but once this has been awakened through the application of the law of God, no explanation will quiet the insistent voice of conscience. Many criminals have finally given themselves over to the authorities because the accusations of a guilty conscience were worse than prison bars. The Bible teaches that Christ cleanses the conscience. To have a guilty conscience cleansed and to be free from its constant accusation is an experience, but it is not the cleansing of the conscience that saves you; it is faith in Christ that saves, and a cleansed conscience is the result of having come into the right relationship with God.

I have read carefully through the New Testament to see just what the experience of conversion is, and I have found that the New Testament reveals only one: the experience of faith – Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Bible Reading

Hebrews 9:6-15.


I stand in awe of the magnitude of Your forgiveness, Father, and I give You praise, and thank You, in Jesus name. Amen.
