Verse of the Day 10-14-22

“Blessed [anticipating God’s presence, spiritually mature] are the pure in heart [those with integrity, moral courage, and godly character], for they will see God. Matthew 5:8 (AMP)

The “pure in heart” are those who have devoted themselves to God and have been freed from sin’s power by God’s grace (his undeserved favor, love, help and enablement). That grace now enables them to please God and bring honor to him by the way they live. There are two things that we need to know about those who are “pure in heart”:

  1. They seek to have the same attitude that God has-a love for what is true and right and a hatred of evil. Their heart- which includes mind, will and emotions-is in tune with God’s heart. This means that their thoughts and desires are pure according to his standards of holiness (moral purity, spiritual integrity, separation from evil and dedication to God).
  2. God requires holiness in his followers because he is holy and because only the pure in heart “will see God.” To “see God” means to be his child and experience a close personal relationship with him, both now and in his future eternal kingdom.
