TEXT: MATTHEW 5:6-8
6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.7Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Key Verse: Psalms 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
Hunger and thirst! Remember the word passion, it stands for a force inside you; a strong desire inside you looking for a state of purity and a heart of Holiness. Let us see that
passion, let us see that force, let us see you running, let us see you panting, let us see you weeping, let us see you doing all you can, let us see you crying and longing, for you shall be filled. God will fill you and give you purity. He who sees your struggle will satisfy you and you shall be filled.
You see a man that does not want any wicked way in him does not accept it. Such a person will do all he can to fight against wickedness in his heart. He will cry “God, I cannot take this wickedness in me, come and help me”. How can I be manifesting pride? How can lie come out of my mouth? God, search me, check me if there is anything unclean in me. Cleanse me from it. Purge me, purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow. If you wash me, I will be clean. If you purge me, I will be whiter than snow. Search my life and see if there is any wicked way in me and make me perfect. Can you see a man with passion for purity? This type of man will not live with anger. This type of Christian will not allow anger to be in him. He must carry it to God and say it must not be here.
This type of a Christian cannot allow lying lips. Oh! No! what did I say yesterday? Oh! God forgive me, let it not repeat itself again. It must not. This type of Christian cannot allow lust. What! How do I feel like this? What happened? Not me again, God, by your grace this cannot be in my life. This is the person that is required to achieve purity.
Thought for the day:
Purpose in your heart to be pure and holy
Song for the day:
Purify me, sanctify me, purify me O LORD…
Bible reading for the day:
