God calls us to be
pure on 4 levels:
- Conscience / Heart / Motives
- Like Paul in 2 Tim 2:19-22, Jesus too spoke of the clean cup in Matt 23:25-26. Does the outside of our cup look good, while the inside is full of sin and corruption?
- Psalms 24:4; 73:1; 119:9
- 19:7-14: Purity at all levels, from actions (known and unknown) to words to the meditation of the heart.
- 15:1-5: Purity means integrity
- No shady dealings in the financial realm?
- Giving contribution even when disillusioned with the church?
- Torrent of profanity
- Care for our physical body (reject gluttony; smoking; drinking; sedentary lifestyle; etc)
- Being known as men and women of our word.
- Keeping promises, making deadlines
- A life centered on God
- Let's all strive for purity, for as the Hebrew writer reminds us, “without holiness no one will see the Lord” (Heb 12:14).
