Purity

Purity can be described in three parts: 1. Purity of Body, 2. Purity of Mind, and 3. Purity of Intellect.

Purity of Body is important in order to maintain a healthy life; in holiness and honour. Purity of Mind describes as divine thoughts arises in our mind. Purity of Intellect is the gifts of the Holy Spirit; containing the wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

In the present age, we want to pursue our exclusively job oriented education and dream to have a better position. But this is useless if this does not bring about transformation among us. We should understand that this is meant for the progress of humanity. We should learn how to value and appreciate the things around us. We all know that we are facing discrimination at present age. God wants us to live in purity; with the spiritual heart and not the physical heart. God give us our life and this life is precious, so don’t behave like an animal and not to waste this precious life. Remember that Jesus willingly gives His life so we may live and that God may be loved.

In this context, you can read the verses about purity and you will learn how to value it.
