Being Yourself with Your Own Conscience

Being Yourself with Your Conscience – The concept of being comfortable with who you are is important. But in saying that, the more important matter is being fully convinced in your conscience of what is right and wrong. There is truth to be found letting yourself figure things out based on your own conscience. You may have seasons of revelation and reflection where you make firm decisions in your mind that guide your behavior indefinitely. You need to make sure that even though others have standards for you, whether it’s about what being a Christian is, church, or dress, or the way to spend money, or what family life should look like, etc.,it is vital that you are the one that makes your faith decisions. So, it is good to be retrospective and remember what others have shown you that works, and weigh what you have learned for yourself, weighing with the Bible, of course, what your conscience tells you, and also at times, just what you want (in the Lord). That is an amazing aspect to following Christ – that so much of it is about Him, but He makes this life to be discerned in your mind with your free will and even to your pleasure. Don’t act against your conscience. Read the Bible to see things in black and white and pray for mercy on the gray. That’s the best we can do.
