Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional Tuesday July 4, 2017
TOPIC: A Clear Conscience – Your Ticket To Eternity With God
SCRIPTURE: And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men. Acts 24:16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A clear conscience is crucial for readiness for eternity.
MESSAGE: Sometime ago, a young man testified in our church of a night vision he had about rapture. He said that he saw how rapture took place and people were being lifted off the ground but he was not. Then he began to cry, ‘Jesus would you leave me after all these years of going to church? Will I miss the rapture?’
As if God wanted to show him why he was not raptured, God allowed him to be taken up but while he was in the air, he said a negative thought that was on his mind before he slept surfaced in his heart and he became too heavy to fly. Immediately, he fell to the ground. He said he fell with so much force that the ground got cracked by the impact of his weight. He also saw people running in different directions.
Seeds of Destiny Daily Devotional: Power In Righteousness
The young man said he realised from the vision that sin weighs heavier than any weight imaginable.
Beloved, a clear conscience is crucial for readiness for eternity.
A young woman who is still a virgin but has a heart infested with grief and bitterness is playing with hellfire. What would be the gain of a man who abandons night club, tobacco smoking and other sinful acts in order to be dedicated in church if he still nurses bitterness? He will end in the same hellfire with killers and other terrible sinners.
Whatever makes you have a heart filled with offence towards man and God is jeopardising your destiny on earth and eternity in heaven.
Remember this: A clear conscience is crucial for readiness for eternity.
1. Forgive everyone who hurt you in time past, those who hurt you now, and in advance (by God’s help), even those who will hurt you tomorrow.
2. Ask God for the grace to maintain a clear conscience.
3. Live a life that is void of sin.
