Purify Yourself

Key Verse

“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” 1 John 3:3

Text — 1 John 3:1-3


No one likes to drink water with a dirty and polluted cup. If one mistakenly drinks water with a dirty cup, such a person can become sick as a result of infection through contamination. This illustration shows us the importance of cleanliness or purity of life. As we desire cleanliness of our physical body in order to enjoy good health, so must we desire purity of heart to achieve spiritual wellbeing.

God desires to have fellowship with His children but it can only be possible when we purify ourselves. Jesus has made provision for the means of purifying ourselves through His blood. Your part is to develop a strong desire for the experience of sanctification. Pray in faith and wait patiently for your heart to be cleansed. Then abstain from everything that can stain your life and cleave unto Jesus, be prayerful, watchful and keep the word of God as a guard over your heart. The hope of seeing Jesus in heaven is the reason for purifying yourself. Keep yourself pure!
