The Epistles of John ~ Part 65 ~ 1 John
A clear conscience is not based on the absence of sin in our lives. It is grounded on the knowledge that we are forgiven. We don't have peace because of who we are, but because of Who God is. How have you experienced this?
"Such confidence as this is ours through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God" (2 Corinthians 3:4-5).
He is the one who has paid the price of our sin. He is the one who has chosen not to remember our sin any longer.
"For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more" (Hebrews 8:12).
To be continued.
