Colossians 2:9, 10: "For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power."
Men who set the eyes of their hearts to seek God for the purpose of deep and intimate relationship with Him will be those who best reflect and mirror Christ to a needy world. It is not purity of our own manufacturing that enables us to see God, but purity that we receive by our abiding relationship in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 1:30, 31: "But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord."
Personal holiness that enables us to see God is not self-manufactured. Self-manufactured holiness is deception, cloaked in pride, and is not acceptable to God. It is only as we lay claim to Christ's holiness to keep our heats pure that we will be able to see God. We must never have faith in our own righteousness or holiness to obtain favor with God.
God the Father has given us all the privileges of claiming and pleading the holiness of His Son without our help.
Men, the world today is full of distractions to turn away our eyes from looking at Jesus for our personal holiness. To have a real impact of purity upon our families, friends, and the world we must lay hold of Christ's holiness alone.
