The heart is the center of emotions. Issues in life come out of the heart. It is important to be aware of what is being stored in your heart. Television, music, and other people can influence choices and attitudes. One must guard the eyes, ears, and all areas against contamination. Contamination of the heart can overflow to actions. Sin is the result. Confession brings God’s forgiveness and cleansing.
Cleansing is the purification and removal of unrighteousness (sin) from the believer’s heart. Wrong motives are removed, and a right focus is renewed. A pure heart will render right actions according to the Holy Bible. Jesus taught about “the pure in heart”. The result and outcome of heart purity is being in God’s presence. God acts on the believer’s behalf. He can be seen at work to provide whatever is needed. The ultimate and final reward of a pure heart is physically being with God for eternity in heaven.
