We have all made wrong choices, giving in to temptation, we take sin by the hand. Children frequently have guilt written all over their faces. An observant parent notices something is wrong. "Do you have a guilty conscience?"
If the child has a sensitive spirit, they confess their wrong, face the consequences, and receive forgiveness. Unfortunately adults often turn their conscience guilt monitor to the off position. Remember we can push "re-set" at any time!
The Apostle Paul had dealt with his sins. "I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day,
(2 Timothy 1:3 NKJ)."
Was Paul's conscience pure, clear, because he was sinless? No, remember before trusting Jesus, he persecuted the church. His conscience was clear because he confessed his sin. He received cleansing; God declared him "not guilty."(Romans 8:1)
