HOW DO YOU STAY PURE?

“…and Moses killed it (the bull). Then he took the blood and put some on the horns of the altar all around with his finger and purified the altar. And he poured the blood at the base of the altar and consecrated it to make atonement for it.” Leviticus 8:15

So what we need is a massive bull to kill and cover each of us with blood? No, Jesus has paid the price; he was the sacrifice to end all sacrifices. So what do we need now?

In the Old Testament, a cleansing agent was required…water, blood, or fire. We are under the New Testament, which is the new and better covenant that Jesus gave us. The sacrifice of Christ brings purification; His blood cleanses from sin (1 John 1:7).

  • The person who is in right relationship with God is to live a life of purity (2 Timothy 2:21-22; Titus 1:15 and references to a pure heart—Matthew 5:8; 1 Timothy 1:5; Hebrews 9:14; James 4:8; 1 Peter 1:22).
  • Purity is also listed among virtues (2 Corinthians 6:6; Philippians 4:8; 1 Timothy 4:12; compare Mark 7:15).

The Old Testament was for our learning. In the New Testament, our cleansing is done when we are buried or immersed in a watery baptism.

  • “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” Mark 16:16
  • “How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word.” Ps. 119:9
