Feelings Out of Order

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: How much attention do you pay to your conscience?

Dannah Gresh: This is Seeking Him, with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.

Jonathan Edwards was a great man of God in the 1700s, used in the First Great Awakening. But he knew how prone he was to sin. Here’s what he said:

Jonathan Edwards: Whenever my feelings begin to appear in the least out of order . . .

Nancy: That means, when something’s bothering my conscience . . .

Jonathan Edwards: . . . or I am aware of the least irregularity without . . .

Nancy: In other words, if I see something in my actions that isn’t consistent with God’s Word . . .

Jonathan Edwards: I will subject myself to the strictest examination.

Nancy: I won’t let it go on, but I’ll identify the sin, confess it to God, and walk in freedom.

If you listen to your conscience, even when something small is bothering you, it can help protect you from bigger sins. Take some time today, and make sure you have a clear conscience with God and others.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
