Get Rid Of The Pebble In Your Shoe

Have you ever walked around with a pebble in your shoe? Even though it’s just a tiny little stone, it affects your ability to keep walking, doesn’t it? Just imagine shopping or sightseeing with a pebble in your shoe. You’re not going to have much fun!

Having sin on your conscience is like having a pebble in your shoe. You can’t really go far in your walk with God. Like the pebble in your shoe, it’ll cause you to stumble and slow you down. Sin constantly pricking your conscience is like the sound of dripping water in the still of the night—it prevents you from getting any rest!

My friend, the only way to find rest for your conscience is to point it to the cross of Jesus. There, every sin that you have and will ever commit was punished in the body of your substitute, Jesus. Because of His sacrifice, all your sins have been forgiven and washed away by His cleansing blood.

Today, you can approach God with boldness and faith because your conscience has been cleansed by Jesus’ blood. The more you believe this truth, the more you’ll walk with a conscience free of the pebbles of sin, and the further you’ll go in your walk with God!
