“I have lived my life with a perfectly good conscience before God up to this day.” The Apostle Paul
As far as the Jewish understanding of law in their day, Paul stood condemned. But Paul knew He was following God in all his decisions that led to this day in his life. He was working to bring in a new covenant, according to God’s will. Though the people did not understand and deemed him guilty, his conscience was clear.
This is the litmus test of our paths, for there is no condemnation in Christ. It doesn’t matter what others judge of us as long as God gives peace and assurance to our heart’s righteousness before Him. He leads to righteous paths. He tests hearts and minds. Seek Him. Follow Him. Hear Him. Obey Him. Walk in peace unscathed by the turmoil around us.
Be BLESSed, Beloved.
(Acts 23:1; Rom. 7:14-8:1)
