Men who keep their hearts pure will have the privilege of seeing God (Matthew 5:87). But, it doesn’t stop there. They will also be invited up into the mountain of the Lord to rule and reign with Christ, seated with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6).

It has always been God’s purpose for mankind to rule and reign over the earth. In Genesis 1:26 and 28 God commands mankind to “subdue it: and have dominion.”

Revelation 2:26-27 says, “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.”

Men, we are called by God to be leaders, rulers and reigners in our families and the world, but it is all contingent upon clean hearts. It is the heart where overcoming is first exercised. It is not enough to keep the body from physically sinning. We must keep the heart.

Jesus said in Matthew 5:28, “But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after he hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Holiness is all about the heart’s imaginations as we are reminded in Genesis 6:5, “Every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”

Be encouraged to keep your heart clean. Colin
