Dr. Billy Wilson of World Impact TV talks about the three things that we need to remember about authentic purity.
Purity is a priority. (Hebrews 12:14 & Matthew 5:8)
“No one can pursue purity for you,” he emphasized. “You must make it a priority in your life that you’re going to seek God until what you want to see on the outside is reflected on the inside.”
Your purity is your own responsibility, no one else can give it to you. To achieve purity, you must seek God until His identity of purity becomes your own identity.
Purity is possible by God’s power. (1 Peter 1:15-17)
“This desire for heart purity is a creation of the Holy Spirit at work in the heart,” Dr. Billy quoted Duncan Campbell.
Purity is only possible with the help of God. It’s not by our works nor our deeds, it’s just about the grace of God.
“The proof of spiritual maturity is not how pure you are but awareness of your impurity. That very awareness opens the door to [God’s] grace,” he quoted Philip Yancey.
“Let your life be blazing with holiness,” Dr. Billy added. “So, purity is possible but it’s only possible through the work of God’s grace.”
Purity requires power. (John 1:7-9, Psalms 119:9, Galatians 5:16)
“The truth is, we can’t be pure without God’s help, this drives us to seek God.”
Attaining purity starts from the transformation of our hearts and for our hearts to be transformed into His identity, we must seek His presence.
“Either sin will keep you from the Word or the Word will keep you from sin.” -John Bunyan
The power of the cross and blood of Jesus, the power of the Word of God, the power of the Holy Spirit.
