2 Cor 7:1

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. KJV

An evil conscience is a defiled conscience. It is also known as a guilty conscience. It is one of the greatest hindrances to having fellowship with God because a guilty conscience hinders a man from entering God’s presence (see Heb10:22). Guilty conscience comes because of sin and it cannot be wished away. The blood of Jesus is our only remedy for an evil conscience.

Fear defiles the spirit. Fear is the opposite of faith and it is a faith killer. Fear works as an opposing force to faith and it hinders an entrance of God into any life.

Another thing that defiles the spirit is pride and stubbornness. God should have a throne in every heart but that throne is occupied by the man who is proud. Pride defiles the spirit and hinders an entrance of God’s presence.

Hatred and unforgiveness defiles the spirit. The character of God’s nature you now have is love; God is love (see 1Joh 4:7). When a man walks in hatred and unforgiveness, he is walking in a nature contrary to his new nature. Hatred is not the nature of God but that of the devil.

Go into today knowing that you have been saved and given an entrance into God’s great and precious nature. Always let the words of your mouth and the meditations of your heart be acceptable in the Lord’s sight. Live your life with a constant consciousness of the Lord’s presence within you. This is the way to live a victorious life as God’s child.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for saving me. I ask that you help me be cleansed from all filthiness of flesh and spirit, through your word and blood. Amen
