Message of the day – blessed are those who are pure in heart

Matthew 5:8How blessed are those who are pure in heart, because it is they who will see God!

God´s Word is all about love, because He is love. True love is only that which is expressed with pure and clean heart – i.e. someone who is honest with themselves and with God and with others.  Let us not keep grudges in our hearts and pretend to love, as Jesus calls that hypocrisy. The Word of God tells us in 1 John 3:8: “My little children, we should not love in word, nor with the tongue, but in work and in truth.”

Jesus has promised we are blessed because we will see God. Our response to that grace is that we need to be pure in heart. Amen.
