“Your word is very pure, therefore Your servant loves it.  I am small and despised, yet I do not forget Your precepts.  Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth.”  (Psalm 119:140-142)

What is pure?  Is it not that which is absolute?  Why settle for 99.9% when the Lord offer a one hundred percent purity.  Come to the Lord and know that He will raise up to be with Him those who love Him.  He will make them perfect even as He is perfect.  Be guided by the goodness of the Lord and know that in Him is life and light.  Come to that which is forever and abide in Him.

Lord, You will not stop until I am ready and fit for Your kingdom.  Grant me a willing heart that sees the need to take all of the wickedness out of me that only what is pleasing in Your sight remains.  Help me to never falter on the journey of salvation You have placed me upon that I may now and always live toward the upward prize of becoming righteous even as You are righteous.

Lord Jesus, You have come to clear that way that I would become like You.  You know where I am and the things I need.  Guide me O Lord according to Your mercy and grace to live into the hope and promise You give.  Guide me now and always to abide with You as You abide with me.  Teach me the truth and help me to learn how to love Your law.  Lead me this day in the way of righteousness.  Amen.
