…how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
The conscience is the voice of our spirit. When we were born again our spirit man was made new and therefore our conscience was cleansed, for our conscience is the voice of our spirit man. The Bible teaches us that God will lead us by His Spirit bearing witness with our spirit. As we develop spiritually we can begin to learn the difference between our soul (mind, will, and emotions) and our spirit man. The more we do the easier it becomes to be led by God listening to our conscience. If you abide in the Word of God you can learn when your conscience is leading you because when the Holy Spirit guides you through this inward witness it will always be in line with God’s Word. This witness with your conscience will come as an inward knowing, a peace within, or what some call a green light when God is leading you in a certain direction. When you are headed the wrong direction there will be a feeling of unrest or an inward knowing to stop, which will seem like a red light. So live in the Word of God and learn to hear and follow the voice of your spirit man, your conscience, and you can follow God’s plan for your life.
