Acts 23

January 22, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Gazing intently at the high council,[a] Paul began: ‘Brothers, I have always lived before God with a clear conscience!’” v. 1 (NLT)

What a statement!  Paul says he has a clear conscience, and he is not ashamed of the way he lives.  That’s confidence; and he has that confidence because he lives pure before the Lord.

How about you?  Can you say you have always lived before God with a clear conscience?  Is purity something you pursue?  Lets take a test

  • Do you have a clear conscience about the things you watch on TV, the Movies you see, or the Music you listen to?
  • Do you have a clear conscience about the conversations you have publicly and privately?
  • Do you have a clear conscience about your actions and reactions to people or situations?
  • Do you have a clear conscience about your private life as well as your public life?

I am sure the list could go on, but the goal for us is to become more like Christ!  Let’s begin and be reminded that we have this awesome opportunity to walk with God, to be used by God, and to see God do great things, but we have to be ready for it.  If we are living in ways that aren’t pure we limit our experience with God, lesson our effectiveness for His Kingdom, and live with out a clear conscience.  This in return steals our joy, peace, and confidence.

Today, let’s examine ourselves, and begin to live pure in a dirty world!
