Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Today I preached Matthew 5:8, which promises that the pure in heart will see God. In truth, everyone will one day see God. The question becomes, Will that beatific vision be a reason for rejoicing? Or, will it be a moment of terrifying judgment?
I pray for all who read these words or listen to this message, that seeing God would be the pinnacle of joy, and that God would purify your heart so that you might see Him. In this sermon, I considered three points
- What does it mean to see God?
- What does the Bible say about the heart?
- How can you have a pure heart?
If you long to see God, ponder the words of Matthew 5:8 and ask God to make your heart pure as only he can.
