The concept of purity, cleanliness, or righteousness is something which is lost in today's society. If you’re reading this, you know what I am talking about. People live in such a way as if there are no consequences for the things they do in their life. However, living a life in such a way often means that one's life is completely filled with temptation, compromise and sin. According to Romans 3:23 "all have sinned" and are therefore impure and unclean; however, Christians need to be always removing the waste of sin from their lives. Christians should also be striving to sin less and less in their lives.
We as Christians should desire purity in every aspect of their lives. we should want purity physically, mentally, and spiritually. We should take care to keep our bodies pure and free from sin. We should constantly be wiping the slate of filth from our minds. We should be focusing on presenting a true devotion to the Lord. We as Christians should be pure in all aspects of our life. We should have pure speech, pure dress, and pure attitudes in everything we do. A Christian's actions often speak louder than their words.
1st Peter 1:22-23: "Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God . . ."
If you study here are some related topics and/or words which might be useful to look up in a concordance: Pure, Clean, Righteous, Righteousness, Holy, Sanctified, Set apart, Sanctify, Blameless.
What areas of your life need to be purified from sin? That question is also directed toward me. I must always evaluate my life, and remove sin and other stumbling blocks in my life. Christians must always be seeking purity, for it is an ongoing state of life in the Lord, which must be maintained.
