100 Percent Pure by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/14/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The makers of Ivory soap pride themselves on making a product that’s “99.44 percent pure.” Now, that might be great for soap, but when it comes to personal holiness, 99.44 percent pure isn’t pure.

First Peter commands us, “Be holy in all your conduct” (1:15). That includes our attitudes and thoughts and outward actions.

To demand 100 percent perfection might seem hopeless. Nobody can be totally perfect—except for Jesus. And we can be completely pure because of His blood and forgiveness.

Through the cross of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, our hearts can be 100 percent pure. Do you want to be 100 percent pure inside and out? If so, ask God to forgive you for every impurity, to cleanse your heart, and to keep you pure.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
