Blessed Part Six

Blessed - Part Six

The Pure in Heart

Blessed are the pure in heart,

    for they will see God. Matthew 5:8 (NIV)

The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof,

the world and those who dwell therein,

for he has founded it upon the seas

and established it upon the rivers.

Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD?

And who shall stand in his holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

who does not lift up his soul to what is false

and does not swear deceitfully.

He will receive blessing from the LORD

and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

Such is the generation of those who seek him,

who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah

Psalm 24:1–6 (ESV)

The ‘Pure in Heart: demonstrate their alignment with God's kingdom through their thoughts, their love for others, and their acts of service.

Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save,

    nor his ear too dull to hear.

But your iniquities have separated

    you from your God;

your sins have hidden his face from you,

    so that he will not hear. Isaiah 59:1-2 (NIV)

Why is seeing God so significant?

  1. Access to the personal presence of God
  2. Divine empowerment for kingdom mission
  3. Being set apart for God’s purposes
