When Jesus saw the crowds on the Mount, he sat down and began to teach. Beatitude 6 - 'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.' [Matthew 5:8 NIV]
God is holy amd He also calls us to be holy. In Psalm 24, the writer admonished that the person qualified to ascend to the hy hill of God is he that has clean hands and has not lifted up his soul into vanity. Meeting God requires tht we be as He is and this starts with the state of our hearts.
The heart is very essential for human living. The heart is rhe engine room for the entire body and tjr Bible states that the quality of a man's life id dependent on the quality of his thinking within his heart.
The essence of the heart further deepens as God promised to give us a new heart that will obey Him (Ezekiel 36:26-27). This means that there is a heart that can relate with God and there is another heart that cannot.
The only heart that can relate with God is a heart that is pure and Bible calls is blessed on our main scripture.
What is the state of my heart?
The above is a question we all should ask ourselves. We see that Jesus in the beatitudes taught us that only a pure heart can see God. The reason is simple. God cannit behold iniquity, even in Christ Jesus, the reason He (God) turned from Christ Jesus that moment the sins of the world was placed on him on the Cross.
We can only relate with god and understand the things of God when our heart is pure. God can only look yo us when our heart is void of sin.
Here is the goodnews, Jesus is ready to cleanse our heart to make us aceptable to God. Though our sins may have been so much, the blood of Jesus is able to cleanse us and make us faultless before our God.
Dear Lord, help me to stay pure so i can relate with you always - Amen.
A prayer for my leaders
Dear Lord, revive @Surpassinggoogle and restore his health - Amen
SUPPORT MY STEEM-POWERED PROJECT - @BLESSTHEORPHAN
@BlessTheOrphan project is targeted towards children and teenagers who have lost either or both parents and are going through difficult times to survive. The affected will receive relieve materials including food, clothing and educational support from @BlessTheOrphan project in a bid to help them survive.
Moreover, the vulnerable girl-child (even with both parents) will be considered in this project. While I grew up, I had been hurt because I had no one to talk to nor be concerned with my worries. I know the pains such girls go through and @BlessTheOrphan project will be a coverage for them. In this part of the world, some girls are so neglected that some rarely have access to the basic woman’s need such as sanitary wares. #BlessTheOrphan project will be a coverage to such.
Friends, Beatitudes (HEARTs) is for all, Be a part of this Blessing...
