I Timothy 1:19

holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith.

This is such a visual picture: shipwrecked faith. How does it happen? 2 things have been rejected: holding onto your faith, and holding on to a good conscience. Satan makes rocky and dangerous shores appear safe, and when a person is lured away from a pure heart, and a good conscience, his faith is shipwrecked. Sometimes, the only way to hold on to your faith is to fall at the feet of God and plead with Him to keep you there. A good conscience comes from listening to the Holy Spirit and obeying Him.
