Purity is the single most powerful force that drives self-preservation. You cannot live your life anyhow and expect not to be a victim of early destruction. Anyhow living simply leads to anyhow preservation! The difference between the one that lives in purity and the one who doesn’t is the length at which they will be preserved. Moses before he could handle the rod of miracles was tested on his state of purity. He was told to place his hand on his chest which turned leprous. At this point it was obvious that he couldn’t handle the rod of God if there wasn’t any purity in his life.
Living life might not necessarily be something strange anymore but being preserved against things others struggle with is what matters. You need to get to the point of saying “NO” to certain things that will cause you to compromise on your Christian standards. Opinions of people don’t matter: the standards of God is the ultimate and that is where everyone should endeavour to ascribe to.
Many will be told to depart from the presence of God during the judgment because they lived without any sign of purity. Have you ever questioned why regardless of how much gifted a person might be, they never seem to produce anything meaningful? The lack of intentional purity might be the answer! All things are lawful onto me but not all are expedient. Once you come to this point, you have to make the decision to live pure for yourself. There is no way round living pure, acting pure and thinking pure as a child of God.
Living pure is something every Christian should endeavour to. Many have the mind you judge them when you point out a fault in their character, relationship etc. However, as Christians, we are meant to prove others by how we live our lives. Until your life style speaks about your relationship with Christ, you don’t have the moral right to speak of others. When in doubt about living right and pure, remind yourself of what the whole of Psalm 24 speaks on. What really gives me the kick is when the Psalmist questions who will ascend onto the hill of God and stand in His holy place. He gives the answer without wavering – “he that a clean hands and a pure heart.
To the pure all things are pure. The bible warns a lot about things that defile a person. It’s about time you take living right and pure for God seriously. Nothing you do for God will go unrewarded. Purity carries with it a divine key that causes one have access to untold breakthroughs. Purity is what makes the difference between two people in life. To stand out and be different, preserved above others consider living purely for God. Whatsoever things are lovely, pure, just, honest and of a good report if there be any praise and virtue think on these.
