Is our spiritual life one with a pure conscience or because God should love us more? Are we walking with sin in our life? If we are walking with sin then that sin will bring condemnation in our heart and faith will no longer work in our life.
Now, let us search our hearts and ask ourselves, which area of our life are we walking with an impure conscience, because it will short circuit our faith. All that God has planned for us will not be manifested because our faith works through love. Every day in our lives the devil is going to challenge us with different issues, he is going to bring people with hatred. The devil is going to bring all types of negative circumstances against us to get us into bitterness and if we give in then it will short circuit our faith.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Even though we may have the Word of God in our heart, that bitterness, that un-forgivness, that offense will stop our faith because faith only works through love.
Every time our thinking is contradictory to God’s Word we are walking in the flesh. Then faith in God’s word will be of no benefit to us. We have to be extremely vigilant to walk in line with God’s Word and give no room for the devil.
