Blessed Are The Pure In Heart

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.

Our lifestyle of purity begins our reconciliation to God.

This Beatitude necessitates the strictest and most honest self-examination.

We are to do everything with pure, unmixed motives. This demands the death of self and the springing to life of Christ within our heart.

Blessed are those
whose motives are unmixed
and who operate in purity.
They shall be given
a vision of God Himself.

As we draw closer to God through purity,
we shall see Him more clearly,
love Him more dearly
and follow Him more nearly.

Blessed are those whose motives are absolutely pure and whose life is characterized by purity, for they will be able to see God.

God delights in pure hearted children,
and He wants to use submissive and humble people.

Let us seek to live our lives in true purity before God with good motives.

Oh Lord,
I can only live this way
if I listen and respond positively
to the reproving of Your Holy Spirit.
Help me to be sensitive to purity issues.
