Worship – Live Pure

Hello Everybody! 😀

Today, I just want to post this song by Jonathan Nelson called Live Pure. I believe that as Christians it is our desire to live a pure life. We certainly aren’t perfect beings but striving to love like Christ and live with the heart of Jesus being demonstrated through our actions is what we should aim for in all our conduct. We live in a world that is filled with perversity and strife,  but God wants us to live a righteous and pure life filled with love in our actions. In the book of Proverbs, you will find many references to what it means to live with a perverse heart, tongue, or way (life).

Psalm 101:4

A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not know wickedness.
For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord, But His secret counsel is with the upright.
Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.
[ The Wicked Man ] A worthless person, a wicked man, Walks with a perverse mouth;
All the words of my mouth are with righteousness; Nothing crooked or perverse is in them.
The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.
The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, But the perverse tongue will be cut out.
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, But the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.
Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the Lord, But the blameless in their ways are His delight.
A man will be commended according to his wisdom, But he who is of a perverse heart will be despised.

He who walks in his uprightness fears the Lord, But he who is perverse in his ways despises Him.

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

A perverse man sows strife, And a whisperer separates the best of friends.

He winks his eye to devise perverse things; He purses his lips and brings about evil.

He who has a deceitful heart finds no good, And he who has a perverse tongue falls into evil.

Better is the poor who walks in his integrity Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

The way of a guilty man is perverse; But as for the pure, his work is right.

Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse; He who guards his soul will be far from them.

Your eyes will see strange things, And your heart will utter perverse things.

We need to design our lives to live and strive for righteousness. It doesn’t mean that we won’t slip up at times because we all are still trying to deal with the old man and the old habits as we continue to pursue the renewal of our mindsets and our conduct.Seek God to change your heart and renew your mind so that your conduct can be pleasing before Him. When you start to transform and become more Christ-like in your conduct, people will witness to a New You appearing before their faces. They will not be able to figure you out and will not understand what it is that is causing the change but this is because the power of the Holy Spirit is not only able to renew your mind, but He is also able to transform your image and your appearance. You will be glowing and people will not understand what it is that they are looking at but this it the new man, this is the transformed version of you that they have yet to witness. Let the Lord renew the Spirit of your mind and you will see amazing things happen in your life, Amen. God bless you everybody!

Ephesians 4:22-24 NKJV

22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
