MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from
[always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you
will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
*____...."If our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and we receive from Him whatever
we ask, because we keep His commandments and do what pleases Him".... 1 John 3:21-22
____Believers simply do not realize how very significant their conscience is. Many have the idea that as long as they walk
after the spirit all is well. They do not know that an unclear conscience means loss of confidence in approaching God and that this loss in turn means disruption of one's communion [fellowship] with Him.
____In fact, a muddied conscience can hinder our intuitive communion with God more than anything else. If we fail to keep his commandments and do what pleases Him our monitor within shall naturally reprove us, rendering us fearful before
God and hence keeping us from receiving what we seek. We can serve God only with a clear conscience [2 Timothy 1:3]. An opaque one shall surely cause us to shrink back intuitively from God.
