Have You Got a Boo, Boo?
















The Cleansing, Healing Work of the Holy Spirit
Pastor Adrian Rogers

"Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for Thou art my praise." Jeremiah 17:14


There are two kinds of wounds to the human psyche. One is sorrow; the other is guilt.

Sorrow is a clean wound. Somehow your heart will heal as the Holy Spirit applies His healing balm. He will pour in "the oil of gladness." Time and the grace of God will heal.

But guilt is dirty and will never heal until it is confessed and cleansed by the antiseptic of Calvary. A slave only fears his master's whip, but a son fears his father's displeasure.

Are you suffering under a load of guilt? Allow the Holy Spirit to expose your sin. Then confess it and experience the joy of forgiveness in Christ.

Reflections Of The Father's Heart
Glenn H. Jackson
June 23rd 2010


+ Ungodly [unrighteous] counsel ALWAYS has its root in the pride and selfishness [self-serving ways] of the one administering the "counsel" - and leads one further away from My Will rather than into the fullness of it.


...."How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish".... Psalms 1:1-6 NASB

Ignoring the Conscience
Dr. Charles Stanely
1 Timothy 1:18-19; 4:1-2

Are you making certain choices today that your conscience would not have allowed in the past? If that's the case, you may have become desensitized over time. This is a dangerous place to be.

As we discussed yesterday, God uses our internal "moral compass" along with the Holy Spirit's guidance to direct our daily choices. The conscience serves as an "alarm system," intervening when a Christian is about to take part in ungodly behavior. In that way, it offers protection. But sin can throw off the system's sensitivity.

The insidious process begins if we choose to disobey and then refuse to deal with our rebellion. The conscience warns us repeatedly, but it will eventually become "gummed up" and ineffective if we persist in ignoring the distress signal. When that happens, there are no longer any signals from the heart to point us back toward godliness. In other words, the conscience has become seared.

This situation is akin to removing all traffic lights from a busy intersection: it is a recipe for disaster. If you are at this place, get on your knees and repent, immersing yourself in God's Word and bathing your life in prayer. Pursue accountability and fellowship with other believers. A healthy conscience is worth the effort.

Are your internal signals in good working order, or have they become muffled? Don't delay. Scripture warns us that we have a real Enemy who desires to lure us away from godliness and into destruction. God uses a clear conscience to guide, protect, and lead us into His light and peace.
