Can your Conscience be your Guide?
The book of Genesis tells us that God has created us in His image and likeness, but He has also given us a will, an emotional mind, and intellect. Our conscience and thoughts are determined bu out understanding of our ethics and plated out in our moral behavior. The baggage that we drag through life is often a collection of bad decisions and worldly ethical behaviors, baggage that God never intended for us to bring along on our journey. We sense a struggle and sluggishness in life as if something is weighing us down, thinking there must be some outside force interrupting our progress to move forward. Many are unaware of the cause of his struggles within, and often times, it's not until someone else pokes us in the shoulder and says, "Hey, is that a trailer behind you?". To our surprise and shock, we look back and see that what is attached to us is this huge trailer.
Trailers come in all kind of different sizes, forms and shapes. What's in the trailer is all out heavy baggage of life, the burdens in this life that have weighed us down. It's time to "deep six" the trailer, but we first have to learn to how to uncouple it from our conscious behavior. Not so easy, Building a Christian Conscience is the only way to get this trailer of life's burdens unhooked from us. This is only possible when the standards of the World of God are in our hearts. Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves with integrity and godly sincerity. This is a Christian conscience-- with integrity and godly conscience.
Paul Said, ' Now this is our boast: Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, with integrity and godly sincerity. We have done so, relying not on worldly wisdom but on God’s grace.' (2 Cor. 1:12)
