Romans 2:15 “Since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.”
God has place a conscience inside of us to help guide us. It doesn’t matter where you are with your walk with Christ or if you don’t have a walk with Christ, you have a conscious. Our conscience is sent by God with one purpose which includes the standards of how God desires for us to live.
It’s like having a little Jesus sitting on your shoulder all of the time guiding us in every situation.
When you are doing something that you should not be doing and your conscience is whispering in your ear telling you to stop…what is your response?
Do you listen to that little voice?
Sometimes I think we just grab a long strip of duct tape and tape its mouth SHUT!!! That’s what happens when we IGNORE our conscience. That little voice can’t be heard if it has tape over its mouth. Until we take the tape off, you will not hear what that little voice needs to say.
Acts 24:16 "So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man."
