The Surpassing Greatness of Jesus: The Cleansing of the Conscience
God wants to enter into a covenant relationship with us where we can enjoy true love, acceptance and intimacy with Him, but there is something that keeps this from happening. All of us live with a guilty conscience that prevents us from believing and accepting the possibility of having an intimate relationship with God. But Jesus shed His blood on the cross to cleanse our guilty conscience. When we understand that Jesus paid the price for all our guilt and shame, and that through Him we have a new position before God as His redeemed righteous children, we can experience the power of the healing of our inner conscience. With our conscience healed, we can now enjoy and accept an intimate and personal relationship with God.
