Few people like having a guilty conscience.
Yet, everybody experiences such at one time or another.
The reality is that we all sin and fall short of God’s glory.
This is why we are in such need of His grace and Word so that we can find forgiveness at His feet and renewal of our determination to do what’s right.
You see, walking the “straight and narrow” is always the best choice when it comes to being the person God wants us to be and to gaining the influence for the Gospel that we’re called to have.
Let’s be very careful today to avoid the traps of temptation, however Satan seeks to slip them into our minds and hearts.
It’s not just about keeping our souls from being stained but also about not giving ammunition to the enemies of Christ.
“Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.” (I Peter 3:16)
It very well might be that the only person with meaningful Christian influence in your workplace or family circle of influence is you.
Please protect that influence by protecting your spiritual testimony.
Let’s all speak and act like the humble, hard-working Christ who never gave legitimate ammunition to His critics and, ultimately, won some of them over to the Gospel because of His profound determination to honor God and serve them.
As always, I love you
