1 Tim 1:19

To do this you must hold firmly to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck in regard to the faith. [NET]

We see from today's Bible text that those who have a shipwreck of their faith are those who reject these: faith and a good conscience.

In Hebrews 10:22, we see that the blood of Jesus delivers us from an evil conscience; some Bible translations render this (evil conscience) as 'guilty conscience'. The opposite of an evil conscience is a good conscience.

A good conscience is therefore defined as one that is free of all guilt. A man with a good conscience does not have any guilty feeling towards God in His heart.

The way faith works, it may appear that one can have faith at the expense of a good conscience because a man with a weak conscience may see someone who has more faith than him doing things that would violate his conscience( see 1 Cor 8:7-13). But the truth is, faith and a good conscience work together. You cannot have solid faith when your conscience is messed up. Your conscience is the voice of your spirit and faith is a result of spiritual realities (even though these realities cannot be physically seen). A man that has faith simply perceives spiritual realities, and this is done by his spirit. You need a sound spirit to have faith in God. An evil or guilty conscience hinders this soundness.

Go into today determined to avoid things that tamper with your conscience. Plea the blood of Jesus against every guilt. Guilt is a great hindrance to fellowship with the Holy Spirit, and could ultimately lead to a shipwreck of faith.

Prayer:

Ask the Lord to help you guard your heart with all diligence so you don't keep tampering with your conscience. Amen
