VerseD: Matthew 5:8

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
Matthew 5:8, ESV

When we believe in Jesus Christ and His atoning work of His crucifixion, death, and resurrection, we are given His purity.

Believe in Jesus, and we will see God face to face one Glorious Day.

VerseD: Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Philippians 4:8, ESV

Notice there is nothing that says “Christian” in this list. It is okay to appreciate other things, as well.

We only need focus on the good and positive and honor Christ in our thoughts.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 5:21

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21, ESV

We are utterly sinful.

Christ is completely pure.

He took on our disgusting, separating sin on the cross, so that, when the Father looks at us who believe this, He sees the purity of the Son.
