Psalm 36 Bible Study
1. Keep your conscience clear
Pagans don’t mind sinning because they don’t know God’s law. Some people know God’s law but they choose not to obey it. It is important that we keep our consciences clear and make sure none of our motive or actions are evil. The Holy Spirit agree with our conscience. In Romans 9:1, I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost. In Isaiah 30:21, and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. In Romans 2:15, which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another.
In 1 John 2:27, but the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. In Proverbs 3:5-6, trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. In Hebrews 10:22, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. In 1 John 1:9, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. In 1 Timothy 1:5, now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned.
