It’s hard to feel right when you do wrong. For me, a conscience-following lifestyle is much more fun than a guilt-producing lifestyle. A violated conscience clamors for correction, crying out for you to make things right.
A person without a conscience is like a car with no warning lights, gas gage, or speedometer. If we don’t live by the Bible’s high moral values we are following something (or someone) other than the risen Jesus. True Christianity goes beyond Sunday preaching to radical discipleship and hands-on disciple-making: training people to obey Christ.
You don’t have to hear about Jesus through a sermon. You can have a direct conversation with Him by yourself. He speaks in your conscience. Take time to listen.
Don’t have a religious go-between between you and God. Keep in direct contact with Him. It’s easy to follow religion and ignore God. Try not to do that. You can learn more about life by opening your heart and mind to God than by decades of church attendance and sermon-hearing.
God is beyond human understanding, but Christ has opened the door for humans to experience Him. Christian mysticism happens when you open up your heart and mind to the living God.
