OVERCOMING A GUILTY CONSCIENCE 2



 
Audio Version with YBP Audio Bible Link: http://bit.ly/29ldHaY
 
 1 John 3:18-20
Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth.  19 And by this we will know that we are of the truth and will convince our conscience in his presence,   20 that if our conscience condemns us, that God is greater than our conscience and knows all things. [NET]
Because of some mistakes Sandra had made in the past, she had a conscience that was always condemning her. After being a Christian for more than four years, she would still sometimes feel that she is not truly born again. She got free from this when she could prove to herself that she was now indeed a child of God.
Love is divine and anyone that walks in love does so because He is born of God and knows God (read 1 John 4:7-8). We have seen on this platform some time ago that the kind of love proceeding from God which manifests in believers is the original true love. This love does not expect anything in return for good deeds.
If you read today's Bible text carefully, you will see that we sometimes need to convince our consciences in God's presence concerning who we are. One sure tool we need to do this is having the evidence of God's love shed abroad in our hearts. This could only happen because God has accepted us as His sons. And the strongest proof of this is that we have the ability to walk in love toward fellow Christians and our neighbors.1 John 1:9 tells us that if we walk in the light (by walking in love), the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness. Unrighteousness is that proclivity in the soul to always go the wrong way.
Go into today knowing that the blood of Jesus cleanses God's Children from guilty consciences (Heb 10:22). Love is the greatest sign that we have been fathered by God.
