    Pure Hearts in the Capitol

    We are all concerned about the health of our hearts. We try to watch what we eat and exercise. We find ways to deal with the stress whether in life in the statehouse. Some of us regularly visit doctors, monitor our blood pressure, and take medications to keep our hearts healthy.

    Jesus tells us that one who would be right with God must have a healthy heart – a pure heart. Of course, He is speaking in spiritual terms. We should be more concerned with our spiritual health than our physical health. That is why it is so important to consider what Jesus means when He calls on us to be “Pure in Heart”.

    This is the topic of this week's Bible study in the West Virginia statehouse, "Pure Hearts in the Capitol", as we continue our series on the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes. "Pure in Heart" certainly speaks of moral purity but it also means a heart that is undivided - a heart that is totally dedicated to the Lord. In the world of politics this can be quite difficult.

    Please pray for those in the capitol who do not know Christ that they may find the purity of heart that only comes when Christ's purity is credited to them when they put they're faith in Him.

    Pray that believers might strive to be wholly dedicated to Christ in an atmosphere where this may difficult to do.

    Pray that our ministry might continue to have an impact in the remaining days of the regular session.
