Purity

“Every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth Himself, even as He is pure” (1 John 3:3).

What hope is this that the Apostle John is talking about? It is the hope of the Lord’s return! This should make us want to stay pure. The Lord is going to take us to a place of absolute purity. There nothing will ever defile us again.

However, in the meantime, the Lord is pleased when He sees His own seeking to live a pure life while they are waiting for Him to come. Make a special effort to clean up your thoughts, your actions, your words, and your relationships so that you will be conformed to the image of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is pure through and through. Our desire should be to be that way too. The Apostle Peter exhorts us, “But as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15-16).

Here is what the Apostle Paul said to the young man Timothy: “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12).

The Lord is coming! “Keep thyself pure” (1 Timothy 5:22).
