Pure in Heart: Matthew 5:8

“Blessed [anticipating God’s presence, spiritually mature] are the pure in heart [those with integrity, moral courage, and godly character], for they will see God.

Matthew 5:8  (AMP)

The heart is considered a symbol of love, but often the heart values may be corrupt. Jesus said that about the Pharisees, they projected outward purity, but their hearts and thoughts were not pure. To be pure in heart, we need to obey the Lord’s rules, to follow His will, and to live a life pleasing to God. Then we will see Him and be with Him in eternity.

Are you pure in heart, or is your heart focused instead on earthly material objects?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, forgive us for our hearts are often not pure, and our values and motives not godly. We ask you to help us to focus on living a life that is pleasing to You. Lord teach us to be pure in heart. Like the bleeding heart flowers open and expand as they bloom, teach us to open our hearts to You and expand in love toward one another. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

  1. Beautiful reminder, photo, and verse! Praise God that he gives us a new heart and a right spirit with godly desires when he saves us, and empowers us by his Spirit to walk in his ways, but as the scriptures also say, we must, by His Spirit, continue to put to death our old, sinful ways which continue to make war against our spirit. God bless!

  2. I was recently listening to a teaching on being pure in heart. The Lord looks at our hearts. He can see our motives too. So it’s important be quick to repent of sins so we can have pure hearts and walk closely with the Him. Thanks Jeanne. This post is a blessing. Have a wonderful weekend. ❤️
