KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:8 KJV” Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”.
Purity of heart is a highly priced virtue that every child of God must keenly work hard to be establish in his or her life. It is non negotiable and indispensable. The Lord says people with a pure heart would see the Lord. (Hebrews 12:14) Seeing the Lord also means encountering His power. Prophet Daniel put it this way, Dan 11:32 KJV “……: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” The pure are normally free from certain demonic harassment. This makes the pure in heart a more peaceful person and subsequently a happy person.
There are a number of Christians who are unfortunately given to very impure ways. They would break the trust reposed in them. Because of the wrong impure thoughts that they allow their minds to fellowship with, they find themselves, stealing, cheating, fornication, getting drunk and many more. This cut across all levels of life. From the church, the home, business setting and many more. Such actions rub the culprits of their peace and happiness. Rom 2:9 KJV” Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; “Such anguish of soul and distress of life is simply unnecessary for the Christian to find himself in them. Every child of God has been called to peace and happiness. Dear child of God, kill the impurity from today.
HOW would a child of God become impure? If he feeds himself with impure stuff, and less of the word of God. 1Co 15:33 KJV” Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. “The next thing that creates impure thoughts or heart is meditating on the wrong things (Rom 8:6)
