Clear Conscience: Dealing with Offenses Toward Others
“So I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man.” Acts 24:16
Are you still serious about personal revival?
If so, not only will there be a renewal in your vertical relationship with God, but you will also be willing to make things right in your relationships with those around you. It is in these relationships that humility and holiness are practically lived out and proven to be genuine.
What does it mean to live with a clear conscience in regards to others?
“If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” Romans 12:18
Many times we struggle with prayer because of a guilty conscience. Because of sins against others, which are ultimately sins against God. As we offer up prayers and worship to God, we are responsible to come with a clean conscience.
“ ….let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience….” Hebrews 10:2
Jesus tells us in Matthew 5,
“So, if you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.” Matthew 5:23-24
Whether we are offering a monetary gift or are offering up our prayers to God (Hebrews 5:7), we must do it with a clear conscience toward all.
This is the heart God revives.
Oh God, please reveal to me the one I have wronged or offended. I want to have a clear conscience towards You and all others. Thank You for your grace to do the right thing!
