Living With A Clear Conscience

Have you ever done something and explained it by telling someone, “My conscience was bothering me?” Conscience is defined as “an inner feeling or voice viewed as acting as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of one’s behavior.” So our conscience guides us in living. In Acts 24:14 the apostle Paul said “Because of this, I always try to maintain a clear conscience before God and all people.”

Paul was speaking to Ananias and some other Jewish leaders when he said this. He was explaining how he was a follower of The Way which was how Christianity was referred to in first century. He said, “I always try to maintain a clear conscience before God and all people.”

That should be our goal as well. How can we maintain a clear conscience before God and all people? We can follow God. We can live by the teachings of Scripture.

And to maintain a clear conscience before all people we should strive to live by the golden rule. So, is your conscience clear before God and all people? It can be; if we live by the commandments of God and treat others the way we would want them to treat us.
