*🌽SEEDS OF DESTINY🍇*

*TOPIC: THE DEAD CONSCIENCE*

DATE: SATURDAY 29th AUGUST 2020

SCRIPTURE: Now the spirit speaketh expressly that in the later times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of the devil, speaking lies in hypocrisy having their conscience seered with a hot iron. 1 Timothy 4:1-2.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When the conscience is dead, life is doomed both in this world and in the world to come. 

Earlier, in our previous study, we saw the necessity of living with a clear conscience. The state of our conscience is very critical to our relationship with God. Our conscience affects our eternal destination. 

A living conscience facilitates a healthy spiritual life. 

Today, we want to look at what constitutes a dead conscience.

It has been confirmed that when conscience is dead, life is doomed both in this world and in the world to come. 

1 Timothy 4:1-2 says, Now the spirit speaketh expressly that in the later times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of the devil, speaking lies in hypocrisy having their conscience seered with a hot iron.

When people tell lies and don’t seem to feel anything; when they steal and don’t feel anything; when they commit immorality and don’t feel anything; when they cheat and don’t feel anything; when they kill and still don’t feel anything; their conscience is already dead. They are not safe. 

Now, conscience can die in the following ways:

1. Repeated acts of rebellion.  

When you do the wrong thing repeatedly and your conscience pricks you for a while but you refuse to repent, you will be left alone. A time comes when the sinful action will begin to appear normal. That is the realm where some hardened criminals live their lives.

2. Un-confessed sins

Conscience can become dead with un-confessed sins. This is a situation where the person is doing the wrong thing but does not see any reason to say “sorry” to God or to man. 

3. Excusing or justifying wrong deeds.

Your conscience can die when you excuse or justify wrong deeds. When a person is busy excusing, explaining or justifying a wrong deed, the conscience can come to a point where it becomes unresponsive and dead. 

Beloved, it is very important to take heed to this so you don’t run your race on earth in vain. What shows that you are preparing for eternity is living with a clear conscience that is void of offence.

Remember this: When the conscience is dead, life is doomed both in this world and in the world to come. 

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Refuse to live in rebellion to God.

2. Don’t live with un-confessed sins.

3. Refuse to excuse or justify a wrong deed.

4. Maintain a broken spirit and a contrite heart.

PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to keep my conscience alive always. Deliver me from the tragedy of dead conscience, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Never sleep over a defiled conscience. Never! Culled from “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Ezekiel 13-15

AMAZING FACT: A person uses 17 muscles when they smile, and 43 when they frown.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Victory over transgression be your portion in this season in Jesus’ Name.
