Pure Heart

Happy 4th of July! God bless America and may America bless you Lord. I pray that you will have a blessed day with family and friends.

John 3:30 says, “He must become greater, I must become less.” This is a great verse to commit to memory. It is short but it is packed with power! The one word that pops in my mind every time I read this verse is the word pure. Most think of pure as being the absence of contamination or the elimination of evil but the second part of that has to do with the desire and commitment to one thing!

Pure gold not only is free of dirt and grim but also free of other good things such as silver, and diamonds. A pure heart is a heart that wills and seeks one thing. Every decision and every choice is surrender to God. God yearns for a pure heart! All pretense is stripped away!

Jeremiah 29:13 says, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” I want to encourage you this morning to seek the face of God and ask God to cleanse your heart, soul, and mind. Lord give us a pure heart!
