I believe that all humans are inwardly flawed and need supernatural help to consistently think and do what’s right. Left to our own thoughts, feelings, and desires we will cause pain and harm to ourselves and to other people. The good news is that according to John 1:9, Jesus gives light to everyone and according to John 1:12, to as many who receive Him, He gives them power to become children of God.
God’s light in people is called conscience. If we begin to listen to our conscience, it will give us light to see where we’re off track. It will show us our need for supernatural help and demonstrate to us that we can only consistently do what’s right by being inwardly transformed. Who can change us from the inside out? “If anyone is in Christ, He is a new creature; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.”
