The conscience is our internal traffic light, given to us by God for our own good. Learn how this personal moral compass keeps us safe—and how ignoring it can lead us down dangerous paths. Don’t sear your conscience by repeatedly disobeying its leading. Instead, keep it clear and sensitive so you won’t be led astray.
“In this world you will have trouble” (John 16:33 NIV). Of all the promises Jesus made during His time on earth, that’s one we all wish weren’t true. But, as most of us know from personal experience, it is.
In this message, Dr. Stanley echoes the disturbing reality of those words but reminds us that the verse doesn’t end there: “But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Yes, storms—be they of our own disobedient making or an attack of the enemy’s—are inevitable. But through them all, God is conforming us to His image, demonstrating His power, and drawing us closer with His love.
