You Need a Pure Heart

DAILY SOUL’S NOURISHMENT (DSN) BY PASTOR JULIUS U. BETHEL, PASTOR THE BIBLE PRACTISING CHURCH

THURSDAY 27TH JUNE 2024

BIBLE REFERENCE: MATTHEW 5:8

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

THE MESSAGE: The heart is one of the most vital organs in the human body. Apart from its anatomical function of pumping blood round the body, it is the center of emotion and affection, and symbolizes life and vitality.

The heart makes the man. As you think in your heart, that is how you are (Proverbs 23:7). A wicked heart, produces a wicked man. A loving heart, produces a loving man. A righteous man, produces a righteous man. What you on the outside is what you are on the inside. Your “outside” is a reflection of your “inside.”

Jeremiah 17:9 tells us that the heart of man, the unconverted man though, is very deceitful and wicked. But when a man becomes converted through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, his heart becomes free from its deceitfulness and wickedness. Nevertheless, the heart still needs to be sanctified, that is, purified and purged of the “root” of sin, called “the Adamic nature.” The experience is also called, the circumcision of the heart (Deuteronomy 30:5).

When your heart becomes pure, you become qualified for heaven, living a daily life of holiness and righteousness becomes easy. You will also be able to pray, and your prayer will be answered; you will enjoy special divine protection. Finally, heaven will be your eternal abode. Praise the Lord!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Only those who have pure hearts, are practising true Christianity

PRAYER POINT: Pray and cry to God for a pure heart.
