As we continue in our series “the Kingdom Manifesto”, we will be getting into Jesus’s next message: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God”.
In other words, the holy shall see God. We are inherently sinners and separated from God, so becoming holy is not something that we can do by ourselves. However, God sent Jesus Christ to save us from our sins when we truly receive Him in our hearts.
Jesus did not come into the world simply because we have bad habits that need to be broken, he came into the world to break the chains of sin and the bondage of death. To set us free, and make us alive when we were once dead. However, this is only half of the story.
Only those who are pure and holy may enter the presence of God. It is not something that can be achieved through our works, or result from the basis of our goodness. It is purely from God's grace, through Jesus that we are able to enter into his presence.
