When you believed the gospel message of Jesus Christ … you received a NEW PURITY
Another beautiful piece of your salvation experience is that you are declared “clean” in the sight of the Lord. Your “sins of scarlet have been made white as snow”. The slate of your sin has been wiped clean.
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1
“The Holy Spirit declares, ‘Their sins and lawless deeds I will remember no more.’ “ Hebrews 10:17
Regarding the Gentiles, Peter said, “and God made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith.” Acts 15:9
“How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” Hebrews 9:14
“Let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” Hebrews 10:22
“And everyone who has this hope fixed on Jesus purifies himself, just as He is pure.” I John 3:3
“Blessed are the pure in heart (this is who you are right now!), for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8
