Beatitudes: The Pure in Heart

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” ~Matthew 5:8

Wow. They will SEE God. In Revelation, John tells us that we will SEE God, if we are faithful. “They [His servants] will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.” (Revelation 22:4) What a AWEsome sight that will be to behold! As I sat pondering this beautiful picture, I thought more about what “pure in heart” means. The heart is our volition, our will. To be pure is to be of one mind, untainted, whole, not divided.  This means that if we are “pure in heart”, we will be one, unified with God’s will. His will is our will. Our will is His will. Not only will we see God on the New Earth if we are pure in heart, but we will also see Him in everything around us. We will see Him at work in every circumstance and every thing — literally! — because we are one with Him in heart, one with Him in volition and will. In order to SEE God, we must seek to daily, moment by moment, deny our own will and seek to be in line with His. Then we will be pure in heart and we will see God. ♥
