In Acts 24:16 Paul the apostle said, “So I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man. ”  Later in 1 Timothy 1:19 he told Timothy, “holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith.”  We can see from these verses and others that the conscience is no small thing. Whether it’s keeping a clear conscience in our walk with Christ.  Or having a properly informed conscience from the Word of God.  Above all, having a cleansed conscience by the blood of Christ.

What is the conscience? It is a witness within side ourselves that either accuses us with what we are about to do or excuses us. It is like a metal detector that goes off when we have contraband on us. The conscience is not a perfect guide but must be informed from the Scriptures. Some believers have defiled consciences because of their past association with idols.

Ichabod Spencer, A Pastor’s Sketches

When a man really prays it is not a question whether God will hear him or not, He must hear him; not because there is any compulsion in the prayer, but there is a sweet and blessed compulsion in the promise. God has promised to hear prayer and He will perform His promise. As he is the most high and true God, He cannot deny himself. Oh! to think of this; that you, a puny creature, may stand here and speak to God, and through God may move all the worlds.

C.H. Spurgeon
