The Importance Of Integrity And Keeping A Clear Conscience – Acts 24

From my reading in Acts 24 in the One Year New Testament.

Integrity is what sets great people apart from others.

Many people are gifted and have leadership abilities but it is rare to find a person with true character. The Apostle Paul was a man of character, he said,

“I always try to maintain a clear conscience before God and all people.” Acts 24:16

Having a clear conscience before God is living with the awareness that God sees everything.

Knowing this gives you a healthy “fear” or respect for obeying God’s laws. Also you know that even if you get away with lying or stealing that God sees.

Living with a clear conscience before people is all about faithfulness.

When you say you are going to do something, do you really do it? Are you someone people can trust?

Integrity is not about being perfect it is about being honest when you mess up!

No one is perfect, but the people who have clear conscience are the ones who are honest about their sins and confess them to God and others and don’t lie.

Are you a person of integrity?
