Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
Do you have a clean heart? One thing we need to remember is God reads our hearts and minds (Jeremiah 17:10) So we need to understand that transformation comes from within and not from outside. If you’re still thinking about the same corruptible things, you can’t expect holy practices.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Matthew 5:8
Jesus continually taught about the importance of having a clean heart and mind. For example, he taught it wasn’t just the act of violence of murder that was a sin, it was also the thoughts of violence that is the root of sin (Matthew 5:22)
Same is with adultery, its not just the act of adultery that is a sin. Its also the thoughts of sexual immorality that is a sin (Matthew 5:28) When we get control of our mind and heart, then we truly become transformed to see God
So how do we become clean? Only by the blood of Jesus Christ can purify our souls (1 John 1:7) Once we repent of our sins and accept Christ as our Lord and Savior. You then become baptized by the Holy Spirit and become a new creature. You can’t become renewed without the power of the blood of the Lamb of God, that was on the cross for your sins.
So if you truly want to see God our Father, pray Father give me a clean heart and mind today, fill me with your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name Amen
