Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, continues working through the beatitudes. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Matthew 5:8). In other words, blessed are those who are devoted to the service of God; those who practice virtue and temperance; those who avoid conscious evil. No hidden motives. Singleness or purity of heart is the way by which we encounter God. That which is pure is that which is undefiled, undiluted, unsoiled, uncompromised, unpolluted. In a sermon in 1881, Charles Haddon Spurgeon spoke of a melting pot where we get rid of the dross and become pure in heart: “Were you ever in the melting pot, dear friends? I have been there and my sermons with me. The result of melting is that we arrive at a true valuation of things [and] we are poured out into a new and better fashion. And, oh, we may almost wish for the melting pot if we may but get rid of the dross, if we may but be pure, if we may but be fashioned more completely like unto our Lord!” Our ultimate exemplar respecting purity is the Virgin Mother of God. From the fall of Adam, it was not possible to find a virgin pure in body as well as in spirit. There was only one such, unique in spiritual and bodily purity.
