Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8 (KJV)
One of the meanings of the word “Blessed” is ‘happy’. True happiness comes only from God, and doing His will; not our own.
Having a “Pure” heart and mind is also a work of God. “Purity” comes from cleansing, pruning away the dead unfruitful parts of our lives.
What do I want for Christmas?
I want God to work in me, pruning away all that is unclean, unrighteous, and unholy; so that I can see God. Yes I know the Lord as my Lord and Savior, but I want You Lord to do Your work in me, make me pure, and clean of heart, soul and mind.
“Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.” John 15:2-3
