MATTHEW 5:8_for they shall see God.
Just like the negative things we dwell on are in embedded in the heart, Jesus’ teachings cleanse the heart. When your heart is purified; you will see God.
You see God when you fill your heart with the truths of His principles found in His Word. You see God when you make sacrifices in your life in order to help someone weaker or needier than you. You see God when you stand for truth even in the face of ridicule, scorn, and lies. You see God when you make choices for righteousness and purity over self-satisfying indulgence.
You see God because your heart has been purified by agreeing with His truths over the world’s lies. You have made decisions in your heart to walk that road, follow that path, take up that cross, and become a disciple of Jesus.
You will never purify your heart by agreeing with the world’s standards. This means looking at images of impurity, speaking words of impurity, engaging in acts of impurity, reading novels filled with impurity, watching entertainment full of impurity, or listening to music about impurity. You are not going to see God on any of those roads.
Heavenly Father, Forgive me for the times I have chosen impurity over purity and the times I have agreed with lies because I didn’t want to walk the road of truth. Help me. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ’s truths are the road to purity—He will lead me!
