How Can You Keep a Pure Mind?

Will power is not sufficient for you to purify your mind of evil thoughts.  However, what if there were a television screen on your forehead that broadcast the sight and sound of every thought you carried in your mind?  Depending on whom you were with, you would manage what you thought in order to avoid negative consequences.  You would only entertain thoughts that would advance your interests with the person you were with. 

Guess what?  There is such a television screen on your forehead and God is watching it all the  time.  Of course, there’s no actual screen but God is fully aware of all our thoughts.  If we truly want to impress Him, we thus have the power to control what we think. 

You purify your mind by thinking all your thoughts in the presence of Jesus Christ.  If you know Him and love Him you will not want to think anything that offends Him. 

The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.

    I totally agree with you here, Mike.
    And I am aware of the fact that I would never be able to continually perceive His presence unless He were the One to remind me of His unconditional love for me and toward my often chaotic thoughts too.

    Indeed, there’s nothing to fight against which is reflected in human nature.
    Nonetheless, I get distracted every time when something which is mentally not good in my view, suddenly ‘pops up’ in my mind. Delving into my world inside, my eyes witness more and more transparent anticipation of what clings to my core…
    …My countdown begins and my heart races at the thought of hearing that special voice of the One who will set me free out of God’s unsurpassable love for all of us (Jn 3:16) – our Lord Jesus Christ (Jn 8:36).

    I am deeply impressed by God never being impressed considering my spiritual abysses 😉 It’s always been that way right from the start and I don’t feel any doubt in my heart that Love is the reason!
