During the month of January, we ‘press on’ As God’s Temple. The ‘pure in heart’ are promised that they will see God. This is one of the beatitudes. Being pure of heart enables us to see according to God, to accept others as ‘neighbors’. This lets us be aware of ourselves and others as temples of the Holy Spirit. Our good acts as well as our sinful acts come from our hearts, we pray to remain simple and innocent of heart as God created us. Keeping our hearts pure as God desires, we Press On As God’s Temple.
“But you are not in the flesh, on the contrary, you are in the spirit, if only the Spirit of God dwells in you. Whoever does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.” Romans 8:9
