I walked out to get the Albuquerque Journal this morning at 5:50am, been posting news and inspiration since 4:30am at FGGAM, and light snow is falling here on the westside of Albuquerque. It is 19 degrees and snowing here at 6:18am, this precise time thing with me is from my radio days! LOL! Nothing like live radio! I was trained years ago, time and temp…….time and temp was to be repeated every break, between songs and commercials. It’s hard for most radio stations to do that anymore because they are not “live”. I miss those days of live radio and having fun with call-ins! I took this picture this morning, I don’t know if you can see the snow falling, but I tried! LOL! With the fresh snow falling in the Duke City, purity comes to mind…..we used to say back home, “She is pure as snow, or she is white as snow” Of course you can change the she to he! But purity, is to be honored. What does God’s Word say about purity?
How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God;
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
I don’t make New years resolutions, but I will say this, I will always try to be PURE in everything I say and do, Amen!
