The Cleansing Power of Christ

By   •   February 6


To have a guilty conscience is an experience. Psychologists may define it as a guilt complex and may seek to rationalize away the sense of guilt; but once this has been awakened through the application of the law of God, no explanation will quiet the insistent voice of conscience. Many a criminal has finally given himself over to the authorities because the accusations of a guilty conscience were worse than prison bars. The Bible teaches that Christ cleanses the conscience. To have a guilty conscience cleansed and to be free from its constant accusation is an experience, but it is not the cleansing of the conscience that saves you; it is faith in Christ that saves, and a cleansed conscience is the result of having come into the right relationship with God.

Why does it seem like some people don’t have a conscience? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day

I stand in awe of the magnitude of Your forgiveness, Father.

    Dear Reverend Billy and Franklin Graham, It is Christ’s gift to cleanse us from all filth; not only off of our physical body, Christ wants to cleanse off our minds too which of course encompasses our conscience. Only through repentance or giving up our sins is Christ able to thoroughly cleanse our conscience.

    The Holy Spirit of God pricks the conscience of believers when they have sinned. Relief can be found only by sincerely asking God for forgiveness.
