1.  In What it Consists

 

1 Timothy 1:5 The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.

 

James 4:8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.

 

2. Means to Purification

 

Psalms 19:8-9 The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living.  9 Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever.   The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair.

 

2 Timothy 2:22 Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts.

 

1 Peter 1:22 You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.

 

3. A Gracious Transformation

 

Isaiah 1:18 Come now let us settle this says the Lord.  Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson,  I will make them as white as wool.

 

4. A Pure Religion

 

James 1:27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

 

5. A Description of the Word of God

 

Psalms 119:140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested;  that is why I love them so much.

 

6. The Glorious Vision of the Purified

 

Matthew 5:8 God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.

 

1 John 3:2 Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.
