It was during one of those songs a man cried out "Purity oh God!" That line struck our hearts to the core. We knew that we were standing on holy ground and that only the "pure in heart shall see God". We confessed aloud the contents of our hearts. Asking God to cleanse us from impure thoughts, impure words, impure ways. We wrestled with the sins of our city, knowing that Boston needs Jesus. We were set alight, ablaze and all our impurities were slaked off in the fire of God's presence.
God is holy. Jesus makes us holy but we can't just stay there and not live out that holy life. We must be holy and to be holy means to do holy.
Today's "My Utmost for His Highest" is a good guide http://utmost.org/ toward that direction.
Remember, it's not how far you've gone down the path, it's what direction you're going. God is always calling us to turn his way.

I'm excited though. This makes my new day resolution to restart my blog that much easier. My plan is to use this blog as a morning study spot. I'll get up in the morning, before the baby is awake, before Kelly is up and type out my thoughts on what I'm studying. In the process I'll move closer to where I'd like to be mentally. Clear and free. Disciplined and obedient.
