Brand New & Pure

One amazing thing about God’s mercy is that he makes us brand new and pure. Since no one has kept themselves completely pure… everyone needs to strive for purity and here are a few verses that have helped me.

1 Timothy 4:11-12 Command and teach these things. Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”

2 Samuel 22:26-28 & Psalm 18:25-27 To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless, to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd. You save the humble, but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.”

Psalm 119:9-10 How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.”

Philippians 1:9-11 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ--to the glory and praise of God.”

James 3:17 “But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure;”

1 John 3:3 “Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure”

This is a great visual: Take some time and imagine putting these words in bold print on your spirit:

Exodus 28: 34
Make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it as on a seal: HOLY TO THE LORD.”
