“Blessed Are the Pure in Heart”

Steve Reed | 07.21.2013

 

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8

We are meant to be adjectives, not nouns! CS Lewis

How is my life a descriptor of God?

What are some of the things I do in my life that is God’s will?

What does God’s will look like in these area of my life:

1. Worship and community?

2. Giving and Motive?

3. Time and presence?

4. My plan of conduct in the world?

Three Questions:

1. Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s andeverythingin it.” How does your life fit into this passage?

2. What would my plan of conduct look like?

The motivation to practice the silence and the detachment, the humility and the absence of time which will give us moments of purity of heart, which calls forth the presence of God.           Thomas Merton

3. How much presence of God do I really want and what am I willing to do to experience it?
