Whatever Is Pure

Whatever Is Pure Sermon Audio Here
the Whatevers of Philippians 4:8

1 Timothy 5:21-22

Consider our Government’s standards of “Purity”: Chocolate: Any 100-gram sample (about 2 ½ bars) contains three or more rodent hairs!

Purity Is…

From Heaven
Zak – Hebrew concept of “singularly unmixed” – substances that have never been mixed; has not been polluted

Chosen For Us By God
Barar – Hebrew concept “to make something clean” – to cleanse

  • Zeph. 3:9 – God gives us purity (as a verb – something DONE in us)
  • 2 Cor. 7:11 – Godly sorrow produces desire to be clear/pure

Teachable In Our Lives

  • Titus 2:3-5 – teach life reverence, so to train others to be pure
  • Phil. 4:8 – whatever is pure — think about such things.

Renewable In Our Hearts
Taher – Hebrew concept of “be clean” – regain a clean state

  • Lev. 14:3-4,7 – If person has been healed, pronounce him clean

Reachable Through Prevention

  • I Tim. 5:22 – Keep yourself pure (inward ongoing effort)
  • I Pet. 3:1-2 – Show yourself pure (outward towards God)
  • I John 3:3 – hope in Him purifies, just as He is (identification)

Sin separates us from God. But God loves us too much to let us stay away – so Jesus made it possible for us to regain our “clean slate”. He wipes away our sin; we just need to be willing to let it go.
