1 Timothy 1:19-20 (KJV) Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme
When Kemi believed in the Lord Jesus, she knew intuitively that she needed to repent of her sins and start living a new life of righteousness. Her pastor also taught her as much. As soon as she repented of her sins by confessing them before the Lord, she knew her sins were forgiven and she now had a clear conscience before God and men. There were books and other things she “borrowed” and “forgot” to return to friends and family that she now felt the need to return with an apology.
Everywhere there is true faith in God, it is always accompanied by true repentance (see Hebrews 6:1, Mark 1:15, Acts 2:41, Acts 19:19). Repentance means confessing, renouncing, and forsaking every known sin.
When a believer continues to walk in a manner that tampers with his good conscience, it could be an indication that his faith is under attack. The devil tempts believers so much because he wants us to have an evil conscience which ultimately leads to a shipwreck of faith. If there’s anything we must fight for, it should be our faith; If there’s any fight we must fight, it must be the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12).
There is a real connection between living faith and a clear conscience. Faith is spiritual and the apparatus of your heart that connects with [the] faith [of God] becomes insensitive if your conscience is damaged.
Go into today remembering that maintaining a clear conscience before man and God is not a luxury but a necessity if your faith will not die.
