The Pure Heart

Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8

The pure heart is void of worldly desires
The pure heart is free from evil desires
The pure heart does not hold on to wicked purposes
The pure heart does not worship idols
The pure heart does not tell lies
The pure heart does not cheat
The pure heart is filled with love which reflects God
The pure heart sees God by faith
The pure heart has a right relationship with God
The pure heart may seek God, and shall see Him, basking in His Holy Presence for all eternity.

Life Application
Ask God to empower you to live a pure life through the Holy Spirit. A life in which you show your understanding of His will and His way; daily reflecting patience with and for others; where kindness flow from you in word and deed and your expressions of love are clothe in truth.
We show we are servants of God by our pure lives, our understanding, patience, and kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, by our sincere love. 2Co 6:6 -

Make up your mind and seal it in your heart “I respect God” and because I respect God I commit to keeping all things from my body which makes it and my soul unclean. I will cast out every unholy thought, thing and person which leads me to unholy acts.
Dear friends, we have these promises from God, so we should make ourselves pure -- free from anything that makes body or soul unclean. We should try to become holy in the way we live, because we respect God. 2Co 7:1

Daily engage in prayer asking God to keep your heart, spirit, soul, body, your whole self in His perfect care belonging to Him alone; His treasured possession.
Now may God himself, the God of peace, make you pure, belonging only to Him. May your whole self -- spirit, soul, and body -- be kept safe and without fault when our Lord Jesus Christ comes. 1Th 5:23

Live Holy
He died so that he could give the church to himself like a bride in all her beauty. He died so that the church could be pure and without fault, with no evil or sin or any other wrong thing in it. Eph 5:27

Life Prayer
God, Most Holy create in me a clean and pure heart; a heart free of the stain of sin. Let me reflect the beauty of the church for which You are coming back to claim as Your own. Wash me of all impurities; making me faultless in mine, body, spirit and soul. Empower me O Lord by Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus Sweet Name I pray.

A pure heart forgives when others make mistakes. Ha! Ha! I beg your forgiveness when I called you Lynn. I now know it is God Chaser.

This is a powerful sharing. I was especially moved by this one sentence: "Ask God to empower you to live a pure life through the Holy Spirit."

Thank you for ALWAYS being a blessing to so many!

Cathy said...

Thank for that wonderful Word and prayer. Reminds me of the song I wrote, Lord, Give me a Heart After Thee.

Rachel said...

wonderful post reflecting the heart of a true child of God. It is incredible to have a new heart that desires the will and ways of God isn't it? What a gift from having lived so many years with a heart attracted to all that was counter to Him. Sometimes these new desires in me surprise me.
