For Conscience Sake - Message #013 - September 18, 2005

Do you have an uneasy feeling that what you just did is not quite right? It's a guilty conscience. This guilt is very real. Guilty consciences are the result of ignoring God and going our own way. A lot of people carry around unbearable loads and burdens of guilt.

There is an alternative. The alternative is Jesus Christ. First, you need to stop ignoring those pangs of conscience. You need to turn your back on wrongdoing. It is sin. You need to change your mind about sin and to think of it as God thinks of it. You need to act accordingly. The Bible says, "Repent, therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away" (Acts 3:19). Yes, those feelings of guilt can be washed away. This is very, very hopeful.

Second, you must trust Christ. The Bible says, "Christ died for the ungodly" (Romans 5:6). Christ died to take the punishment due to others for their sins. You must trust Christ to wash away your sins and to cleanse your conscience. You must trust in God's promise, "Believe in the Lord Jesus and you shall be saved" (Acts 16:31). There is only one alternative to living with a constant burden of guilt because of sin. Jesus says, "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).
