Now, everyone’s heard of your conscience. It’s basically known as something that tells you right from wrong. For a Christian, however, we know that this “conscience” is actually the Holy Spirit, telling us when we’re about to do the wrong or right thing.

I admit, not only is it sometimes—though rarely—hard to tell if you’re doing the right thing, it’s harder to actually do what you know is right. No one’s perfect. You don’t become a Christian because you’re perfect, and when—or if—you become one, you don’t become perfect. You will always make mistakes, since no one is without sin, but with God, he can help us make fewer mistakes. He can also forgive our sins.

If you think about it, perhaps I should have called this article “Doing What’s Right”, since that is sometimes the hardest thing to do. It’s easy—but not nice—to recall the many times that I knew what the right thing to do was, but didn’t do it. Or, rather, I knew what the wrong thing to do was but did it anyway. As a Christian, it hurts to look back at these times, and you wonder why you did. However, God forgives us, and loves us always, no matter what.

We sin all the time; it’s nice to know that God is there to wash them away.
