Women in Christ (logo) Notes from Nancy

In this month’s Bible Study Guide, Scarlett asks the question, “Why would purity of heart be a prerequisite for seeing God?” I have to tell you the first thought popping into my mind was, “Well, I guess I will never see God because I am far from pure.”

I am comforted by 1 John 3:19-20:

This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

We strive for purity. It is a way of life. But it starts inside us. We must nurture ourselves with God’s word, keeping our mind on Jesus’ example, thinking on the pure, Philippians 4:8. If our focus is on God, our actions will follow. It is a lifelong process.

So let us be First of all Pure and study how to Purify Your Hearts.
