GRACE WHEREIN WE STAND: Fruitfulness and Conscience

But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

2Petee 1:9 KJV

Do you want to manifest the divine life, live above sin and be fruitful in your walk of faith? You must avoid a defiled conscience (sin consciousness). From our theme scripture one can discern that one of reasons why a Christian may be unfruitful (unable to manifest the divine life) is sin consciousness. “He has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins“. This is caused by our conscience. This defiled conscience makes it impossible for him to approach the throne of grace which is the only place where he can obtain mercy and find grace to help him walk in the spirit so as not to fulfill the lusts of the flesh. 

Only the blood of sprinkling can silence the accusation of our consciences. By it God testifies that we are guiltless having accepted our propitiation (and we know that God is greater than our Conscience) (1John 3:19-20). Also, by it we can assure our conscience that the punishment for our sin has been born by the one whose blood is sprinkled on us. We appropriate the blood of sprinkling as we fellowship with the Godhead (1John 1:7). If a christian neglects the place of fellowship  he would soon forget that he was once washed from his old sins (2Pet 1:5-7).

Fellowshipping with the Light and in the Light starts by receiving the knowledge of the love of God. The scriptures testifies of God’s love so we can start from there. As you study the testimony in the scriptures, open your heart to the teaching of the Holy Spirit. He will confirm them to you. You are then to respond to this love of God in prayer and in actions (by loving all men because of the love that God has shown to you). The Scriptures says

My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action. This, then, is how we will know that we belong to the truth; this is how we will be confident in God’s presence. If our conscience condemns us, we know that God is greater than our conscience and that he knows everything.
1 John 3:18‭-‬20 GNT

So in essence, walking in love cleanses our consciences and makes our righteousness consciousness to increase. This contributed to your walking in the spirit and bearing his fruits. Walk in love and see how effortlessly you become fruitful.

LET US PRAY

Father thank you for sanctifying my conscience with the blood of sprinkling.

From now on, I walk in love and increase in righteousness consciousness. No more can sin consciousness work against me in Jesus name

Father cause righteousness consciousness to increase in your church in Jesus Name
