To some, purity is an archaic concept, not something they want to think about. They want the freedom to do what they want, what gives them pleasure.

But purity is an important Biblical concept and a central issue for Christians. In fact, purity has far-reaching implications for our lives.

Being pure changes the way we look at life. As Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). They see His purpose in creation and look at the world the way He wants them to see it. They develop His discernment and insights.

However, those who are not pure look at the world without purpose, direction, or the standards developed by our Creator. They think they have a license to do what they want, feeling that there are no consequences.

But the Bible continually focuses on our attitudes and perspectives. For if we are pure, “all things are pure.” We will see life through this lens. This purity reflects the attitude of our hearts and minds as we allow God to refine us, correct us, purge us of sin, and help us to shine with greater intensity.

Remember the Bible’s call to have a pure heart. Seek God’s help to be free of corrupting influences. Seek to be committed to Biblical truths. Be sensitive to the work of the Spirit. Let Him purify you.
