I strongly believe you have been doing just great, since this week began. Welcome to a new day in God’s presence. Previously, we looked at what purity is and a few areas of purity.
Today, we shall be looking at the Part Two of the topic, The Reward of Purity, and we shall be considering one more area of purity and what the rewards of purity are.
The last area of purity we will be discussing is: “Your Action.”
God weighs your actions, dispositions, attitude, mood and positioning. Attitude affects destiny greatly. In actual fact, your altitude in life is determined by your attitude. 1 Samuel 2:3(b) says: … for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.
Remember, your action could speak. Therefore, you must be discipline-conscious in your action to be able to live a life of purity. Also, your action could be read like a book. The Word of God in 2 Corinthians 3:2-3 says: Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
Do not wait for someone to run after you before you do what is right. You have the Spirit of God inside you, so you should know right from wrong. The Bible speaking of Jesus in Isaiah 7:15 says: Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
If you carry a disposition that murmurs, grumbles and complains now that you are single, that already places a limit on the security of your destiny. No matter your situation, rather than murmur, give thanks and your future is guaranteed!
I know 45-year old single lady who needed a breakthrough in the area of marriage. According to her testimony, rather than murmur and complain, she gave thanks to God 7,000 times. Her miracle husband emerged and as at the time she gave her testimony, she was gloriously married. If she did not discipline her disposition, probably she would still be single now.
Your action is a product of your thought. In Proverbs 23:17-18, God’s Word says: Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long. For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
So, mind what you feed on! You must feed on the Word of God always. It will keep you from sin, renew your mind and guard your heart from dwelling on wrong things. You should also feed on books by anointed men of God.
What then are the Rewards of Purity?
Your level of purity is what determines the level of your relationship with God. Until you are born again, you cannot live a life of purity talk less of enjoying the rewards. You get born again by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour. If you are set for this, please say this simple prayer of faith with me: “Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, congratulations, you are born again! You are now a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
