Scripture of meditation:
• Acts 23:1
It’s very expedient that we learn to follow the voice of our spirit, called the conscience. Our conscience can be trained just as we train the body when doing fitness.
Apostle Paul kept a good conscience; that means he followed the voice of his regenerate spirit as a great student of the law.
“And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.”
Acts 23:1 KJV
The question is: how did he do it?
Answer: by practicing the law to the Letter.
The Word of God says:
“But this I confess to you, however, that in accordance with the Way [of the Lord], which they call a [heretical, division-producing] sect, I worship (serve) the God of our fathers, still persuaded of the truth of and believing in and placing full confidence in everything laid down in the Law [of Moses] or written in the prophets; Having [the same] hope in God which these themselves hold and look for, that there is to be a resurrection both of the righteous and the unrighteous (the just and the unjust). Therefore I always exercise and discipline myself [mortifying my body, deadening my carnal affections, bodily appetites, and worldly desires, endeavoring in all respects] to have a clear (unshaken, blameless) conscience, void of offense toward God and toward men.”
Acts 24:14-16 AMPC
The more you practice the Word of God, knowing the Word and the Spirit agree, it will be easy for you to follow the inward voice; your conscience. This inward voice is the voice of your recreated spirit in Christ.
The above scripture is a great example of how Paul kept a good conscience before God.
We can draw a lot from Apostle Paul as a student of the law and do the same as new creatures in Christ.
Remember: the inward voice called conscience becomes clearer when you learn to meditate on God’s Word.
Make it your practice to meditate on God’s Word!
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
