UPBRINGING CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Having a clear conscience
means living right.
It means doing the right
things in God`s sight.
Children know when they do wrong.
They are not born, a ding-dong.
The difference is
in the way they are raised.
In a good moral family,
they can be praised.
Good upbringing can make
the difference in how children act.
Most grow up with similar traits
as their parents. That`s a fact.
As Christians, we must read
and study God`s word to know
what He expects of us.
As Born in God`s Spirit means:
we are His children.
We are not perfect yet,
but we strive for perfection.
We have the Holy Spirit in us
to make this connection.
That`s why we feel conviction
if and when we sin.
We pray to our Father
to forgive us.
He forgives and, only then,
we can have peace within.
When I face God,
I want to have a clear conscience.
Christ Jesus is my Advocate.
He stands in our defense.
''Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.''
Psalms 119: 11
''I protest by your rejoicing
which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord,
I die daily.''
1st. Corinthians 15: 31
1 My little children, these things write
I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any
man sin, we have an advocate with the
Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins:
and not for ours only, but also for the sins
of the whole world.
1 John 2: 1, 2
18 ''My little children, let us not love in word,
neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
19 And hereby we know that we are of the
truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
20 For if our heart condemn us ,
God is greater than our heart, and knoweth
21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not,
then have we confidence toward God.
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of
him, because we keep his commandments,
and do those things that are pleasing in his
23 And this is his commandment, That we
should believe on the name of his Son Jesus
Christ, and love one another, as he gave us
24 And he that keepeth his commandments
dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby
we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit
which he hath given us.''
1st John 3: 18-24
