A guilty conscience can torment you. Have you ever had to drive a truck full of trash to the dump? I mean like to the point the bags are almost hanging off the side. You have to keep a constant eye on your rear view mirror to make sure you don’t lose a bag on the road. You get to the dump and get rid off all the trash and the ride home is much more pleasant and less stressful. The same is when we have so much sin that we can’t enjoy life. The guilt is so heavy that the paranoia of our sin(bags of trash) is overflowing. Dump your sin and feel the freedom of a clear conscience that comes from obeying the Lord. When we accept His gift of salvation, He takes the sin away.
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.
