Bible Challenge – 2 Timothy 2

“If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work.” v. 21 (NLT)

The extent to the way that God uses us is found in the purity of our heart.  In a practical sense, we understand using the right tool for a job, or using clean dishes to eat off of verses using dirty ones.  However, when it comes to our own spiritual life, we expect there to be some kind of exception.  We expect God to use us despite the dirtiness of our life and lifestyle. The scripture doesn’t say that God can’t or won’t use us, it simply says that the extent of how we are used is based on our purity.

Purity is a big topic that includes our pride, thoughts, actions and words.  When we pursue to live with a pure heart, we prepare ourselves to be used in greater ways in the advancement of Gods Kingdom! Purity takes surrender, transformation, and discipline.  Will you seek the purity that God desires?

Today, are you going to pursue purity so you can be used in greater ways by God, or are you going to limit how much God can use you by not pursuing a pure heart?
