Is your heart pure for Jesus? Are your thoughts and feelings pleasing to Him? My beloved long-time pastor who went to be with the Lord once told me the Lord had taken Him from a place of dealing with his external actions that were sinful to dealing with his internal thoughts which were sinful. The Lord has done the same with me! See, the Lord wants us to be pure in our actions, our words, and our thoughts!
We fall short daily as humans, but we have a responsibility to continually purify ourselves by purifying what displeases and dishonors the Lord and moving forward in doing, saying, and thinking what brings Him praise, honor, and glory.
I encourage you each and every day to repent as needed and purify yourself for Jesus!
“But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” 2 Timothy 2:20-21
