Walking to purity of heart is a long walk you can’t take alone

Walking with Jesus…

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
Purity of heart isn’t possible alone. Only in and with Jesus can we receive His Spirit and begin the process of dying to ourselves.

A verse…

A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.
Proverbs 15:1 (NLT)

A devotion…
The Way to Purity
My Utmost for His Highest
https://utmost.org/the-way-to-purity/

Initially we trust in our ignorance, calling it innocence, and next we trust our innocence, calling it purity. Then when we hear these strong statements from our Lord, we shrink back, saying, “But I never felt any of those awful things in my heart.” We resent what He reveals. Either Jesus Christ is the supreme authority on the human heart, or He is not worth paying any attention to. Am I prepared to trust the penetration of His Word into my heart, or would I prefer to trust my own “innocent ignorance”?

Purity is something far too deep for me to arrive at naturally. But when the Holy Spirit comes into me, He brings into the center of my personal life the very Spirit that was exhibited in the life of Jesus Christ, namely, the Holy Spirit, which is absolute unblemished purity.

A reading…
Matthew 15
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+15&version=NLT

Jesus teaches about inner purity

Matthew 15:18-20

Those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart….For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man…

A prayer…
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior walk with me. Liken my heart to Yours. Tame my tongue. Remove from me any and all anger towards others, no matter what. Even when provoked. Help me die to myself. Amen
