TOPIC: PRIVILEGES OF THE PURE
TEXT: MATTHEW 5:6-9
MEMORY VERSE: “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” (MATTHEW 5:8).
Sin brings condemnation and guilt in the conscience of sinners and makes them a terror to themselves. Sinners are plagued with secret fears which follow them like their shadows. They know no peace and have no rest. Freedom from sin is a great miracle. Having received pardon from God, a Christian is free from condemnation. He is justified and adopted into the family of God. As a result, such an individual is entitled to all the privileges of children in God’s kingdom.
Being free from the spirit of bondage to sin and fear, since the righteous are as bold as a lion, he can now cry, “Abba, Father”. Other privileges include: peace, abiding presence of the Triune God, freedom from all curses and satanic oppression. Moreover, there is the hope of being like Jesus and seeing Him as He is. Hence, the Bible says, “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure” (1 John 3:3). Purify yourself by drawing closer to God and desiring to be holy with unquenchable thirst and hunger for sanctification.
QUOTE: There is the hope of being like Jesus.
CHALLENGE: A pure heart produces a pure life.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, give me grace to abide in You till the end.
