Word for Today.

He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul to vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. Psalm 24: 4 AKJV

We do not need to wear special clothes or to wash a certain way before we approach God, before we enter into His presence, like the Jews did in the Old Testament before they entered the Temple. God looks on the heart. All we need is a pure heart and a contrite spirit before God. But we do need to be washed in the waters of repentance and baptism. And cleansed with the confession of our sins.

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." KJV 1 John 1:9

Matthew 5:8 - Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. RSV NIV

" ... that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you are seen as lights in the world ..." Philippians 2:15 NIV
