Keep Thyself Pure – 1 Timothy 5:22

1 Timothy 5:22 – Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.

According to studies on the current global drinking water problem, around 50% diseases and related complications leading to death in the world result from unclean drinking water [1].  The condition of the human heart has similar issues, and impurity causes nearly all of our problems even death.  If we can filter those impurities out, we have life.  

So where can we find a filter with such power?  The filter we need must ultimately be strong and capable of separating our souls from the body of this death.  We need the pure blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse us of sin.  Our bodies and souls yearn for something to satiate our desires like a deer pants for water, but if we settle for the tainted waters of the world, we grow sick and die.  Only when we look for the living waters of Jesus Christ are we satisfied and nourished. 

Neither faint nor be weary in your search for purity today.  Jesus is that good and perfect way you seek.  Wash your mind and souls with the pure water of life in His Word, and say “Ah!”
