Today’s Message For Rhapsody Of Realities
Pastor Chris is saying to us: Faith And A Good Conscience and our opening scripture comes from the Book 1 Timothy 1:19 (KJV) and it says:
Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck
From our theme scripture, we observe the connection between faith and a good conscience. You need both for a balanced and effective Christian life. Your conscience is the voice of your spirit. Your conscience can be trusted, but it’ll only be dependable if your spirit is educated with the Word of God.
Some people do terrible things; they sponsor or participate in acts of wickedness, violence and bloodshed, And their conscience allows them to do such things. Why? It’s because of the condition of their spirits. Their conscience has been educated to permit such evil and wickedness. Their conscience has been seared with a hot iron (1 Timothy 4:2). But if your spirit is conditioned by the Word of God, you’ll have the voice of God in your heart, and it’ll be different.
The Bible says out of your heart- your spirit-are the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). It’s therefore important that you train your spirit with the Word to be a sure guide. Never allow negative thoughts and ideas- thoughts of bitterness wickedness, evil, violence or terror- grow in you.

The Word of God has imparted wisdom to my spirit and renewed my mind to think divine thoughts, thoughts that are consistent with God’s eternal purpose and will for my life! I bring forth good things from within my spirit today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
1 Timothy 1:19 AMPC
