WHATEVER IS PURE

We live in a world that our enemy tries to paint with smudges of profanity, perversity, division, strife, prejudice, distortions, deceptions and lies of all sorts.

 

The good news is, we get to choose where we will direct our attention.  This is important, because we become what we behold.  You know the saying, “we are what we eat.”
When I think of purity, the”milk of God’s word” comes to mind.  Because He is pure, everything He says and does is, too.  When we feast on Scripture and positive examples from other believers, we are strengthened and changed.

 

The Word also refers to Jesus (Read the first part of John 1.)  Jesus is pure; without sin or blemish.  He is absolutely trustworthy.  To think on Him in worship, adoration, praise and meditation is to become more like Him.

 

As we focus on God and His Kingdom, we are transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2.)  While God’s approach is respectful and revelatory, not “brain washing,” I dare say that most of our minds need a good scrub from time to time!

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
