Topic: Pollution Problem

"The pure in heart are blessed, for they will see God" -Matthew 5:8

The Problem

In Romans 7:24, Paul exclaims, “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this dying body?” Can you relate to this? Our sin nature is ever present, constantly tempting us to do what we know we shouldn’t. If we are honest with ourselves—like Paul was in Romans 7—then we’ve got a real problem. Instead of a pure heart, we have a tainted one.

Scriptures show us that sin hinders our ability to see God, to see where He’s leading us, what His plan is for us, what He wants to teach us and how He’s answering our prayers (or why He’s not).

The Cleanup

If we want to see clearly how to live for God, we have to deal with our pollution problem. Here’s how: Step 1. Stop polluting the heart with sin. Ask yourself, What kind of company do I Keep? What kind of jokes do I laugh at? What kind of movies and entertainment do I watch? What websites do I visit?

Step 2. Ask for God’s help in dealing with the remnants of pollution already in your heart. Is thee any resentment or unforgiveness you need to deal with? Is there something you need to confess or apologize for?

Step 3. Take a daily dose of grime prevention—spend time in God’s Word. Read to be wise, believe to be holy.

Bottom Line

Having a pure heart requires commitment and discipline that won’t always come easy. The good news is that God offers His help; He's all we need to get by.

Peace & Blessings,

J.A. Maxwell, Minister
