Hebrews 9:14 - how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot 2 God, cleanse your conscience from dead works 2 serve the living God?
Have u heard the voice of your conscience saying things like, “You deserve hell for the sins u committed against your wife three years ago” or “Why are u surprised that your child is not talking 2 u? You were never around when he needed u”?
You know, there are people who feel depressed all the time bcoz of a sense of guilt, and they “pay” for their sins in terms of illnesses. In fact, doctors are discovering that many psychosomatic sicknesses are caused by guilt and condemnation bcoz the conscience is saying, “You have done wrong. You must be punished. How can your sin not be punished?”
That is why u must have an answer that will satisfy your conscience. When your conscience says, “You have sinned. You must be punished for this sin or else God is not a just God,” u say, “Yes, I have sinned. But this sin and every other sin that I have committed were punished 2 the maximum in the body of Jesus Christ! So there remains no more punishment 4 me today, 4 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot 2 God, cleanse my conscience!”
My friend, the only way 2 bring peace 2 your conscience is 2 look 2 the cross. The cross of Jesus is the only answer that will satisfy your conscience.
So the next time your conscience condemns u bcoz of sin, don’t try 2 silence it with your good works. Look 2 the cross and say, “Father, thank You 4 Jesus and the cross. Jesus was totally condemned on my behalf 4 this sin, so there is now absolutely no condemnation left 4 me.” Then, your conscience will look at the cross and say, “Ahhhh... peace.” My friend, Jesus’ finished work at the cross truly sets u free!
