EVERYTHING IS PURE TO THOSE WHOSE HEARTS ARE PURE
This week we focus on the study of Titus chapter one. The purpose of this letter was to advise Titus in his responsibility of supervising the churches on the island of Crete. I will be sharing with you some selected notes from the Life Application Study Bible (NLT). Enjoy
SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted.”–Titus 1 : 15(NLT)
Some people see good around them, while others see nothing but evil. What is the difference? Our souls become filters through which we perceive goodness or evil. The pure (those who have Christ in control of their lives) learn to see goodness and purity even in this evil world.
But corrupt and unbelieving people find evil in everything because their evil minds and hearts color even the good they see and hear. Whatever you choose to fill your mind with will affect the way you think and act. Turn your thoughts to God and His Word, and you will discover more and more goodness, even in this evil world. A mind filled with good has little room for what is evil.
