Day 15: January 20th, 2019
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.|Hebrews 4:12 but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in Him:|1 John 2:5
the process of PURITY
Prayer focus: 12th Grade Guys
One of the best ways for us to grow in purity is by reading the scriptures. His Word is alive and a guide for us to learn how to live a life that is not only pleasing to Him but also best for us.
The great preacher Charles H. Spurgeon explained Psalm 119 and his Treasury of David saying, 'God's Word is His witness or testimony to grand and important truths which concern Himself and our relation to Him. If we keep God's testimonies they will keep us right in opinion, comfortable in spirit, holy in conversation and hopeful in expectation.'
Spending time reading God's Word - allowing it to flood our hearts with a revelation of His character and His love - will affect the way we speak, think, and live. It will produce in us a life that reflects who He is... one of purity.
The honest truth is that it's a challenge to find time and motivation to read the Bible every day but let's not allow the challenge to beat us down. Make a plan today to set aside time every day to be in the Word, whether that be starting a reading plan or listening to an audio reading of the Bible.
