Pure Hearts

By   •   November 18   •   Topics:

It is impossible to live pure lives until we have pure hearts. Many people today are trying to put the cart before the horse. They are teaching purity of motives, desires, and actions to old, deceitful hearts! No wonder we have ended up such moral failures, in spite of our vaunted knowledge and psychological approaches.

Pure motives, desires, and actions stem from pure hearts. Pure hearts will be Christlike. It is God’s desire that we be conformed to the image of His Son. If Christ lives within us and our bodies become the abode of the Holy Spirit, is it any wonder that we should be like Him?

    Love Billy Graham.

  2. Gerry says:

    Maintaining a pure heart is a very difficult task. We are bombarded daily with ungodly circumstances. As believers, it is essential that we stay grounded in God’s Holy Word and seek the full armor of God. Otherwise, we may fall prey to satan’s wiley deceptions.

  3. Phillip Sanchez says:

    I am extremely grateful for the help I can get from the messages that I continue to find on this site. Thanks. I need them to learn where I should be.

  4. Richard Smith says:

    Being of a pure heart a sound mind cand only be attained through Jesus Christ. He says seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and he will add all these things.

  5. David Wilson says:

    I love to reflect on the words of Dr. Billy Graham. I was able to sing at one of his prayer sessions in Dallas Texas. A saying for the Prestonwood Baptist Church and it was one of the most revealing experiences of my entire life. It started me on a journey that will end until I meet our Savior Jesus Christ.

  6. Gerry says:

    Allow Christ to cleanse your heart daily . Seek his guidance every morning in prayer. A pure heart yields pure behaviour. However as humans we will fail from time to time. When we do he is faithful to forgive us and set us back on the right path as his children.

  7. Max says:

    Being pure in heart is not an easy task especially in the secular times we live in. We need to choose our friends wisely, pray for wisdom and to be a credible witness. Mat_5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
