Part 8: Shipwrecked Christians

(This is part 8 of 10 parts in this class)


How conscious are you of being a new creation? How assured are you that you are made the righteousness of God? The answer will depend on the use you're making of your good conscience.

Your good conscience provides you with a window through which the light of Heaven can shine. Your good conscience is a precious thing that you must hold fast to. Don't put it down for a moment.


Let the window your conscience provides constantly have God's light streaming through it! In this light you will see the new creation that you are within. By this light you will see God as He really is and recognise what a real Father He is to you.

Hymenaeus and Alexander failed to do this. They failed to hold to their good consciences and so shipwrecked themselves. They didn't position themselves daily where the light of God could shine through their good consciences. As a result they sailed into disaster - as far as their faith was concerned they shipwrecked! (1 Timothy 1:19.)
