A Clean Heart
“Nothing outside a man can make him unclean by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him unclean.”
When God gave us His commandments He gave us the Law that we are to follow in our everyday life. We know from His law what is right and wrong, and when we make our daily decisions we know which ones meet with God’s approval and which ones don’t. Therefore when we confront temptations in our daily life, we know which temptations to avoid. We know that if we visit a friend’s house and see money on his table that we aren’t to take it, as this would be stealing. We know that we should not make up a story that is not true, as this is lying. We know that we should not use the Lord’s name in vain, as this is cursing. God had given us His laws and expects us to obey them. The problem is that Satan also is tempting us to not follow God’s laws, and is putting all kind of thoughts in our minds, and we find ourselves in situations continually where we have to either obey God or Satan. Our lives therefore become a battlefield as to who will win, either good or evil; God or Satan. The battle is for our heart, as what comes out of us comes from our heart, and can either be clean or unclean. If we have filled our hearts with the word of God, goodness will come out of us and we will be clean. But if Satan has infiltrated our hearts evil will come out of us and we will be unclean. This is why we need to be in the presence of God each and every day of our lives, as He can protect us from the temptations and deceptions that Satan can send upon us. I would encourage each of you to go to God daily and get in His word, and know what His Law and commands are and follow them in your daily lives, so that when your decisions need to be made they will also be God’s decisions.
