An Undivided Heart What do you think an undivided heart means ? Well according David we can have a divided heart. Why different things take a hold in our lives such as work , family , entertainment etc. David prays “ Give me an undivided heart “ Psalm 86:11 ....... Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. So if we have a divided heart we can be sure the secular things of this world will take more importance in out life . Therefore the work we can do for God will become polluted with earthly things. Jesus says “ Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God …. Matthew 5:8 . The word “ pure “ in this verse in the Greek means “ Katharos “ which does not means pure in the sense of perfection but pure not mixed with other things . The biggest battle of our lives is the corruption of our hearts . Jeremiah 17:9 ….. The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? We know our hearts are not pure and never will be so why did Jesus say “ Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God ? A pure heart is an undiluted heart as Paul says in Phil 3: 13 ….. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, We are to press on toward the goal for the price of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus . Anything that inhibits my progress toward what God has called me to become is a hindrance . To have purity in heart , not mixed with other things , we need to narrow our interests to put Jesus first . Proverbs 23:7 …… As a man thinks in his heart so is he. As we narrow our interests to Christ , that opens up our purpose and agenda and living for God. The pure in heart will not panic in the storms of life , but will se God with eyes that are impossible to those whose hearts are not pure - not pure as in perfect – but as undiluted “ Katharos “ style . The promise “ They shall see God “ is the pure heart not seeing God physically but seeing Him everywhere – in creation – in circumstances – in confusion and in crisis.
