Titus 1:15 NIV | “To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.”
A pure heart is a heart that harbours only God and submits to His will. A corrupt mind is a defiled mind. It also means a closed mind; a mind that doubts and limits. Your mind can be limited by what you know that you push aside what God is saying. Peter’s mind was limited so he could not embrace the ministry to the Gentiles from God. (Acts 10:10-14) His mind was corrupted so he couldn’t see it was God. (Mathew 5:8)
When Paul got converted, what the people knew about him wouldn’t let them embrace and receive from him. Your past knowledge can trap you. Your past channels of blessing can constitute a hindrance. Don’t get trapped in them. Don’t get attached. You could be fighting against God. The Holy Spirit is your source. Receive sensitivity to let go of the past and focus on Him. Let Him purify your heart afresh today.
