Thomas A Kempis knew the value of having a pure heart. He’s quoted as saying, “If thou hadst simplicity and purity, thou wouldst be able to comprehend all things without error, and behold them without danger. The pure heart safely pervades not only heaven, but hell. “
Purity of heart offers us access to God’s goodness (Psalms 73:1.) Jesus himself said those with a pure heart would have the ability to see Him, (Matthew 5:8.) It’s only those with a pure heart which are able to live continuous presence of God. (Psalm 15:1,2)
Too often, we like thinking of ourselves as having a pure heart when Jesus tells us in Matthew 15:19 that things such as murder, slander, stealing, adultery and lying originate in our hearts. Who knows what heinous sins we each might be capable of?
It’s only through Christ and His grace that our hearts have any chance of becoming pure. Yet, if we’re willing to come into agreement with His plan and purpose for our lives we can know these benefits of a pure heart.
Do you want access to God’s goodness, the ability to see Him clearly, and the joy which comes from living continually in His presence? It all comes with a heart of purity and integrity. Why not let Christ complete His work in you today?
