“Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye doubleminded.”
Are you drawing near to God? Or: How DO you draw near to God? What does purify your heart mean?:
I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.
The Lord is nigh to them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
The Lord is nigh to all that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
