VERSE:...keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame. (1 Peter 3:16)
EQUATION: A cleaned, cleansed Conscience >> (is far greater than) the souls of scoffers + blasphemers.
ACTION: The great Moody Church senior pastor Dr. Erwin Lutzer once wrote that a cleansed conscience is full of assurance, peace and hope. This is so true in light of 1 Peter 3:16, a great verse which should encourage the saints to persevere in light of those who persecute, hate and spout vile rhetoric against Christians. Their day of Judgment cometh nigh, on that Day of the Lord. Therefore it behooves the Christian to be a peace, love and stay the course because our Hope is based on things from Above, Divine things which cannot be defeated.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for this Truth, that You have not only given us this blessed assurance that Jesus is ours, but that You have set aside a day where all accounts will be settled and all will be judged. Strengthen, encourage, embolden and buffet our Faith that we may be salt and light in this World, full of love, mercy and grace, while not losing sight of the what is really important - remaining obedient and completely sold out to You, our Great Creator, Lord and Master of all things, in Jesus' Holy Name, amen.
