Is not your goal to be pure before Jesus?
Because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can all stand spotless, pure, and white before the Lord.
Matthew 5:3-12 (KJV) Blessed are the poor in spirit: for their's is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for their's is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Matthew 6:21-24 (KJV) For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Whenever I think of purity, I always think of milk. Just think about it, a tall cool glass of clean, white tasty milk; its color testifies to its purity. Now you let some foreign object falls into milk, say, like a fly and it becomes readily noticeable that this impurity has contaminated the entire container of milk. Nobody I know wants to drink milk that has had a fly in it. But let someone remove the fly and once again the milk appears to be pure, although there are now things in it you cannot see, unseen contaminants that make it impure.
Isaiah 1:18 (KJV) Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1. Have you ever had your heart cleansed?
I mean, in the context of this passage, can you unequivocally say that you have come to that point in your life where you have been humbled by your sin, mourned over it to the point that you have recognized your inability to do anything about it yourself, and hungering and thirsting for righteousness, you have experienced the filling that comes when you receive God's mercy and had your sins washed away and your heart made clean. If you've never come to that point in your life where you've received the forgiveness of sins Jesus offers, if you've never been given Spiritual sight by receiving spiritual life, this morning, God wants to wash your sins away, He wants to make you pure in heart.
Psalm 139:23-24. "Search me O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting."
God made us and He alone knows us. It is with the blood of His Son Jesus that He can cleanse us. When we allow Him to search us and know us and cleanse us, then and then alone can we address this issue of purity.
With A True Open Heart come before Jesus whom talks with the Father and Give Him your Heart that is bruised let Him repair and mend what has so been abused by you and others.
Let Him make a New Creation within you.
I have not much but a tattered Heart it's all I have please take it and make it pure in you. Take this stone and make it flesh. Love You, Teach Me your ways.
