TEXT: ACTS 24:14-18

MEMORY VERSE: “And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men” (ACTS 24:16).

Conscience is described as “a person’s moral sense of right and wrong, viewed as acting as a guide to one’s behaviour.” The subject of pure conscience is very important to a Christian, as it determines the extent of conformity to the word of God. As a commentator puts it, “your conscience recalls what you have accepted as right or wrong.” That means your conscience keeps a record of your behaviour or pattern of life. It is a heavenly witness God has put within every boy or girl to report all that is going on in his or her life. Those who commit sins behind closed doors, thinking that they can cover their sins, are not wise because their sins are recorded in heaven and known to God the owner of our conscience.

The scriptures say, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). You are to depend on the scriptures to determine what is right or wrong. God searches the hearts. To maintain a conscience void of offence, therefore, make your ways right through restitution where necessary.

QUOTE: God searches the hearts.

CHALLENGE: The heart is deceitful, let God rule yours.

PRAYER: Lord, grant me a conscience void of offence always.
