What is Purity?

What is Purity? by Keith Cook

"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." Philippians 4:8

As Christians we have a higher call on our lives. At the time we give our lives to Christ that escalates us to a level different from that of non-Christians. The world is watching Christians and we often fail them. Some of us daily!

We are called to live our lives as an expression of Christ's life. If we as Christians do not live our lives as a testimony and example, how then should we expect others to want a relationship with Christ.

A large problem with our society is the fact that they do not live pure lives. Contrary to popular belief there are consequences for our actions today. So we are faced with the question, "What is Christian purity?

The Bible lays out many guidelines for Christians. However, we must individually live pure. That means at times we're going to have to make a conscious decision to live out our purity. At times it may be very hard.

Peer Pressure is not something that you only face as a teenager. All throughout life people will contribute to your decision making process in a negative or positive way.

There is no better time than today to make a commitment for purity in your life. Not just sexual purity but Christian purity. Living your life in purity is the best testimony you could ever have.

1) What are some requirements concerning purity that your culture has imposed on you?

2) What are some of your Christian requirements/standards concerning purity?

Personal Prayer Focus: Pray that God will guard your heart as you  to live out your Christian faith based on personal convictions and the truth from God's Word.

On The Go Prayer Focus: GoTeam Missions Projects. Pray today for On The Go's GoTeams. GoTeams are teams of young people and adults ministering throughout the world who want to make an impact in another individual's life for Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Neighborhood Outreach Program. In reality, very little is being done to reach people in many communities across the USA. On The Go is striving to train local Christians and help them develop programs that can systematically and permanently reach real needs in their neighborhoods.
