God: can tell your level of purity….
Titus 1:15-16 (KJV) Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate”.
There are many things in life that can pollute us and in our own eyes we might be prone to be righteous through and through, but it takes someone with an impartial eye to tell us what our true state is like.
We tend to do things that are contrary, but because our conscience is seared and inactive it doesn’t account to much; this is a sad state.
Purity is seen by our heavenly Father and He has set the standard for purity and righteousness. Anything less than what He requires is contrary to His will; many have gone against His will and the folly listed in the reading today is the result of that act.
May the Lord of truth and love, lead us into the path of all righteousness.
