Purity means being made and kept whole, consecrated, set apart through the spiritual work of the word of God and the Holy Spirit. As you give your life to Christ the invisible power of the Holy Spirit enters you and sanctifies you. Your heart is circumcised and you are able to identify and hates in like never before. You feel different. You know God now owns you. So, sin is no longer your natural default. Christ offers you the benefit of being made whole, sanctified, and cleansed up by the power of Christ.

Note that unless your heart is sanctified you cannot be free from sin. No other legalism can free you from sin. Meanwhile as long as you are not sanctified you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Having achieved this purpose, He is able to live in human beings and teach us to live holy lives. He can empower us with grace and ability to be holy. Furthermore, Christ’s death qualifies you to possess His holiness as your own.  The search for the Bible verses can be realized under heart purity, body purity, marriage/ relationship purity, eye/sight purity and character purity. Also, I think you can still learn from this video on purity.

Heart purity

Everything comes from our hearts, whether good or bad. Before things are put into actions, we should have thought of them before implementation. That is why our hearts need to be purified.
