“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8).Text — Matthew 5:6-9
When a person accepts the gospel, and repents, he or she becomes a child of God. The desire of every such child is to partake of God’s glory and fellowship with Him both here on earth and in heaven at last. The believer henceforth, desires more of God in holiness, purity and love. However, according to the apostle of Faith, Smith Wigglesworth, when a saint ceases to seek after holiness, purity, righteousness, truth, prayer, reading the word and pursues carnal appetites, then Satan can penetrate him or her.
Are you longing for pure motives and thoughts? Do you always want to have all your actions untarnished with sin? If yes, it means you want to walk with God with a pure heart. Purity and innocence are godly virtues. As in science, purity is freedom from contaminants. It is the absence of anything spiritually unwanted. Saints like Enoch, Joseph, Ruth and Esther were pure. The pure in heart have access to God and will see Him. Beloved, keep yourself pure and enjoy God’s blessings.
Beloved, keep yourself pure
Pray and read God’s Word.
