Abiding in Christ

For the Sake of the Conscience

Actions of the conscience are derived from the soul, the place where knowledge of the mind and affections of the heart come together. These give birth to both word and deed, which are either in agreement with or against the Spirit of Christ. The call to abide in Christ compels us to nurture these actions of the conscience and to discern the heart and mind of the Trinity by entering more deeply into teaching and reflection, extended times of solitude and prayer, self-examination, confession, fellowship with other believers, and fuller participation in issues of justice.
