…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?
When a person is born again they receive a brand new spirit within them for they are cleansed of the old spirit man. The voice of our spirit is the conscience. That inward knowing deep down inside. When you are born again the conscience is therefore also cleansed because you have a new spirit. Our conscience, this inward knowing, is how God leads us, for the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit man.
If we will learn to listen to this inward witness we can follow God’s leading for our lives. In John 14:26-27 Jesus tells us about the Holy Spirit, our Helper who will come to us when born again. He then tells us that He is leaving with us peace, and that our hearts should not be troubled nor afraid. This inward peace is how the Holy Spirit confirms when we are headed the right direction in life. The words troubled and afraid refer to an agitation or timidity.
When we are heading the wrong direction in life we will feel agitated or timid, an uneasiness within our spirit. This is how we know the way we are headed is not God’s will for us. But when we are headed in the right direction we will have a peace, complete calm within our spirit, and this is how God by His Spirit within will guide us in life. So listen to your conscience. If you have unrest in your spirit know the Holy Spirit is revealing to you this is not God’a will for you. When you have that peace within, you are on the right path.
