What steps should you take to lead a pure life?
- Be close to Jesus: We need to be close to the only human who achieved ultimate purity learning from what he did, seeking his advice.
- Stay spiritually alert: If we don’t remain spiritually alert through active obedience and prayer we’ll be caught off guard by spiritual attacks from the enemy and our own sinful desires
- Pray so that you won’t fall into temptation: Jesus’s means of drawing near to God was prayer. Jesus wanted his disciples to do the same. Matthew 26:41
Striving for and maintaining purity affects all aspects of your life. A pure heart will show in your thoughts, words, choices, attitudes, relationships, and more.
