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!
