Blessed are the pure
On this particular night this verse, which I've read before many times, jumped off the page. It set my mind to thinking so many thoughts that I couldn't keep up with them on paper, so, I just wrote the verse down simple and plain.
What did it mean? What is being pure in heart? and what did it mean to see God.
Those two questions rolled around in my mind for days after I wrote down the verse.
Blessed, I love that word, who wouldn't want to be blessed and for what? for having a pure heart; a heart that is set apart for His purpose...and the reward?, "for they (you, me) shall see God."
Oh, how my heart lept in my chest reading those words, what a wonderful reward, one that I am anxious for and look forward to. One that encourages me as I walk through this life, that at the end of it I will see God. A lovely promise, one that is of the highest value.
I love how Steven was written about in Acts 7:55 regarding this view, just before he was stoned to death
"But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God" (NKJV)
I pray that you are encouraged today with the promise of this Beatitude.
How does this verse speak to you, comments are welcome and encouraged.
