'LOVE FROM A GOOD CONSCIENCE'



"Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience and of faith unfeigned" - 1 Timothy 1:5
.
There's a judge in every human and that's our conscience. As invisible as it is, it's functional except that many has seared theirs with a hot iron (1 Tim. 4:2) through disobedience. A conscience that is seared with a hot iron is dead, ineffective and cold.
.
How can you claim to love God and you're receiving or making calls or browsing in His presence when you can't do such in the presence of an earthly king? If your conscience doesn't prick you while doing such, it shows that it is dead.
.
If love is to be expressed to your neighbor from a good conscience, you'll do to them as you want them to do to you (Luke 6:31). But a bad conscience will be evil, self-centered or callous.
.
Love from a good conscience isn't condemned before God and men (1 John 3:21) after it has expressed love. Everyone, regardless of their fallen state has a good conscience but many do not listen to it until it becomes dead.
.
Whenever your conscience tells you that what you're about to express as love is bad, you must desist from such act.
.
Love from a good conscience is harmless: it doesn't break heart, it doesn't disregard God or disrespect his neighbor.
.
How can love flow from a good conscience? Pay more attention to what it says before you express love or indulge in an act. Obey what it says or follow everything good it tells you to do.
.
Love in itself is good, but when it flows out from a bad conscience, it's evil, crazy or wicked. This is often the cause of many issues in relationship that leads to abortion, rape, premarital sex etc.
.
Conclusively, love from a good conscience is without pretense or hypocrisy. It does what is good no matter the situation or circumstance.
