A conscience clear

is sign of hope


in the One


who makes all things new

and can keep us from willful sin


A clear conscience shows

that life renewed

and actions redeemed


are all the heart of a Savior


Who provides new

and do-overs

and mercy


We make amends

and we mend brokenness


because of hope


We ask for forgiveness

and we offer it


because of hope


We keep short accounts

on account

of hope


And we choose right over wrong

because we have every reason to


God is our reason


His reverence

love for Him

respect for Him


And if there were no Divine reason

for a clear conscience


all would be hopeless


We would do our worst

and sink deep


All would weigh heavy

and overwhelming


So, keep your slate clean

and clear things up where needed


and do it because of hope


and for the love of your Savior


You know the Truth

Now walk in it


conscience clear

and hopeful



and free

Because of this hope, I always do my best to live with a clear conscience toward God and all people.

– Acts 24:16 (VOICE)


“Don’t be afraid,” Moses answered them, “for God has come in this way to test you, and so that your fear of Him will keep you from sinning!”

– Exodus 20:20 (NLT)


Such hope [in God’s promises] never disappoints us, because God’s love has been abundantly poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

– Romans 5:5 (AMP)


And see to it that your conscience is entirely clear, so that every time you are slandered or falsely accused, those who attack or disparage your good behavior in Christ will be shamed [by their own words].

– 1 Peter 3:16 (AMP)


Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.

– 1 Timothy 1:19 (NLT)
