- Message as to why Nothing’s pure in the World:
Dearly beloved, as much as we would like to live pure lives & please God that goal can be a struggle since Lucifer is always there to make us unclean. But we shouldn’t loose hope but be on a mission to live our lives in order to see God. After all the Christian experience is all about opening up blessings for eternity & now. And the key to opening up blessings is to have a pure heart even though in the World nothing’s pure. That’s the beauty in Matthew 5:8 that states that in order to have a pure heart you must be spiritually strong. You cannot be sorry and cry out for the things that displeases God without the pressence of a pure heart. We should aim to have a pure & clean heart as Christains because our bodies are the temple of God. Actually, this is one of the most central principles of the Christian life that we see in the whole Bible. The heart of the matter is the matter of the heart. As Christians we are called to live lives that are holy. We are to set aside the evil ways of the world and honor Christ by living in faithful obedience to His commandments. It’s my hope and prayer that God renews the right spirit within us so as to testify to his greatness.
