1 Peter 3:21 Shows the Necessity of Christ for the Redemption of Conscience

…an appeal to God for a good conscience – through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  –  1 Peter 3:21

Only in Christ can the human conscience be redeemed.  For only in Christ is the true nature of God fully revealed.

Christ suffered crucifixion…and was raised to eternal glory.  Love conquers all things.

Why didn’t God just tell humanity to walk according to conscience and not go through with Messiah and His cross?  Because only through Messiah and His cross could the human conscience be properly calibrated to God.  Only in Christ can we truly see the love of God.  No words could have explained it to the point that we would understand and accept.  God had to demonstrate His love toward us.  We had to see His love in action in order to believe it.

Let your conscience be redeemed through connection to Jesus Christ our Lord.  Without Him as its standard, conscience can never operate in full godliness.
