Do we need a pure heart? How do we get one?
« on: March 02, 2020, 08:17:08 am »
   Throughout this study we have seen Jesus teaching Paul through example how to be righteous or Love in any given situation or struggle that he would encounter.  In the case of purity what we see is Jesus teaching that it is the pure in heart: an heart that we cannot see with our fleshly eyes: that are blessed for they will see God.  (Matthew 5:8)  Purity of heart is without doubt an important concept to Loving God and others.  This godly purity that is so important comes from a godly grief.  (II Corinthians 7:2-16; II Corinthians 11:2-3)  In Philippians 1:3-11 we see that prayer and discernment are key components to being pure and blameless, filled with fruit of the righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ as an offering of praise and glory to God.  (Philippians 2:15)  Even Love comes from a pure heart, (I Timothy 1:3-11; I Peter 1:13-25) a good conscience and sincere faith.  We cannot even Love without a purity of heart that comes from the righteousness of Christ.  Even in dealing with others, we need to guard ourselves that our helping them does not pollute our own hearts. (I Timothy 5:22)  Those with a pure heart will flee from youthful passions, pursue righteousness, faith, Love, and peace. (II Timothy 2:22)  Purity breeds more purity. (Titus 1:15)  Even in everyday life at home we are called to purity. (Titus 2:5) God is the one that cleanses us and gives us a pure heart. (Hebrews 10:22; I Peter 2:2; I Peter 3:2) Even the wisdom that He gives to all who ask is a pure wisdom, full of mercy and good fruits. (James 3:17) Those that have purified themselves have hope. (I John 3:1-10)

Yes, we need a pure heart.
 
A few more scriptures I thought of in addition to the ones you mentioned.

We can pray for a pure heart.
Ps. 51:9 10 Create in me a pure heart, oh, God, and renew your right Spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me out from before you and do not take your Holy Spirit from me.

Our hearts can be cleansed and made pure by faith.
Acts 15:9 He made no distinction between us and them, for He cleansed their hearts by faith.
Eph. 6:12 Because your fight has not been with flesh and blood, but with Principalities and The Rulers and The Powers of this dark world and with wicked spirits which are under Heaven.
1Tim. 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.
2Tim. 3:1But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, 4 traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!
