“And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.” John 8:9
The second faculty of the human spirit is the faculty of conscience. Conscience is the organ of the spirit that convicts you. It lets you know when you are wrong.
Those whom Jesus spoke to in our opening scripture were the scribes and Pharisees who brought to Jesus a woman caught in the very act of adultery. According to the laws of Moses which they quoted they were to stone her to death.
So, Jesus answered and said to them in John 8:7, “… He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”
When they heard this, the Bible says in our opening scripture, “… being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.”
This reveals that our conscience is the organ that convicts us when we are wrong. Therefore, if you will be sincere, you do not need to be told to stop doing what is wrong, if you listen to your conscience you will know what is wrong and you will stop doing it and repent.
I encourage you to listen to your conscience today and refrain from all wrong behavior and habits.
Ask God to expose every seed of falsehood that has entered into your belief system even as you repent from any known sins.
For further study, read:
Acts 23:1, Acts 24:16, Romans 9:1.
Doing the Word.
Stop doing those things you are convicted by your conscience about.
