Purity of Heart and Life
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8)

Purity, even purity of heart, is the main thing to be aimed at. We need to be made clean within
through the Spirit and the Word, and then we shall be clean without consecration and obedience.
There is a close connection between affection and understanding: if we love evil we cannot
understand that which is good. If the heart is foul, the eye will be dim. How can those men see a holy
God, who loves unholy things?
What a privilege it is to see God here! A glimpse of Him is heaven below! In Christ Jesus, the pure in
heart behold the Father. We see Him, His truth, His love, His purpose, His sovereignty, His covenant
character, yea, we see Himself in Christ. But this is only apprehended as sin is kept out of the heart.
Only those who aim at godliness can cry, “My eyes are ever towards the Lord.” The desire of
Moses, “I beseech thee, show me thy glory,” can only be fulfilled in us as we purify ourselves from all
iniquity. We shall “see him as he is,” and “everyone that hath this hope in him purifieth himself.” The
enjoyment of present fellowship and the hope of the beatific vision are urgent motives for purity of
heart and life. Lord, make us pure in heart that we may see Thee!
