A Pure Heart

keep yourself pure.

1 Timothy 5:22



The Pharisees were not happy men. They had furrowed brows, nervous tension, and frustration. They were full of resentments, bitterness, prejudices, and hatreds. Why? Simply because they had lost sight of God’s conception of the pure in heart. They thought that as long as they kept the letter of the law, that was enough to please God. But, it was not enough, and this was not God’s plan. This did not produce purity of heart. This did not bring about happiness of soul. The Lord Jesus taught that God looks deeper than the outside actions of an individual. He searches and ponders the heart. God judges not so much the outside as He does the inside. He looks to the motives, thoughts, and intents of your heart.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ! Holy Spirit of the living God. Thank You for this, another chance and day You have given to me. Remove from me, I pray, all the doubt and unclean thoughts from my heart, mind and soul. Help me, Lord, to have a pure heart, a heart that is ready to serve You. In the name of the Lord Jesus, I pray. Amen.
