Blessed are the Pure in Heart…

for they shall see God. 

Every other Thursday night or ladies class meets.  We are still studying Martin Lloyd-Jones book on the beatitudes.  It has been a wonderful study and I encourage each of you, if you haven’t to read it at some point. 

Last Thursday we discussed his sermon on the pure in heart. 

I have always beaten myself up when I sin.  I think I, with the help of the Holy Spirit, should be able to put the sin behind me.  I HATE it when I sin.  As I’m almost certain each of you reading would too. 

Now I don’t have to… and neither do you.  It’s so simple, I can’t understand I didn’t realize it before. 

The keyword is DESIRE!  Do I desire to pure in heart?  Yes.  Am I repentant when I sin?  YES!  Then I qualify, and so do you. 

See how simple it is?  Isn’t it wonderful.

  1. I have also struggled with past sins. Sins that I have repented of and asked forgiveness for… And yet by me continually beating myself up over it, I am saying that God is not able to forgive me. Can you believe the nerve of me?!

    I am so thankful that God is bigger and more powerful and more loving and more gracious and more forgiving and more merciful than I could dream of, hope for or be!
