Oh, To Be Pure In Heart! Sep 30 2012
"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." - Matthew 5:8 NAS
Have you ever thought about what Jesus meant when He declared in the Sermon on the Mount, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God?" To a great extent, having a pure heart is wrecked because of sexual immorality. Many Christians are living spiritually impotent lives because we have fallen into a mindset of sexual immorality or sensuality or impurity to the point that it blocks our vision and understanding of God. Many non-believers have no inkling or understanding of ever seeing God because of their own lifestyle of sexual immorality, impurity and sensuality.
Jesus tells us that when we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will cleanse us of all unrighteousness. When we do decide to live a life that is pleasing to Him, we can begin to get a glimpse of what Jesus is teaching when He says, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for those are the ones that see and know God."
May this be the case for all of us!
