Titus 1:15 (NIV)
To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.
We all belong to some sort of tradition, culture or ethnicity. As Christians we are led by the life and example of Christ. Like magnets, we attract our like poles and repel what isn’t a part of our makeup. God is perfect and pure and we must strive for perfection. Our flesh prevents that and God knows it. The solution was Jesus. He came to perfect that which we made imperfect. He purified all that was impure, so our corruption was wiped away and we became incorruptible. That is who we are. Chase the things that are above. Blessings.
Oh Spirit of the living God, help us know what is truth, impure and imperfect. Grant us wisdom and lead us in all truth. In Jesus Name.
