Purified Thoughts

[Sunday, October 14]

“Know that love always causes a cleansing of your mind, says the Lord. For even as negative thoughts try to penetrate your thinking this day, sincere love for the brethren will free you from them.”



Prophetic Scripture:

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently (1 Peter 1:22).

The Bible reminds us that there are only two key commandments to be concerned with. Jesus taught them and we see the concept repeated through the New Testament. It’s basically this: Love God; love people. The first commandment is love God with all your heart, and the
second is love your neighbor as yourself (see Matt. 22:38-40). Why are these the only two important commandments? Because if you love God with everything that is within you, you don’t want to sin and do wrong things because you know it hurts His heart. And if you love people, you won’t mistreat them or sin with them. This level of love has a profound effect on your mind. Not only does it cleanse your conscience, but when you love others you don’t think sinful or unkind thoughts about them. Your mind is washed and uncluttered by offense and sinful intentions. The Word unfeigned in First Peter 1:22 means to be sincere. In other words, it isn’t a phony love that just hugs people at church and then cuts them down behind their back or lives a double life. It’s a love that is expressed by its actions of integrity.

If you have had some trouble with wrong or even sinful thoughts attacking your mind, begin by reminding yourself to love and see how it causes you to have purified thoughts.


Prayer:

Heavenly Father, teach me how to love my brothers and sisters in Christ with sincerity. Show me how to love You with all my heart. Wash my mind and cause me to have purified thoughts today. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
