To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.
Titus 1:15-16 NIV
The Action Canada movement was an attempt to establish a new political party in Canada in 1971. Paul Hellyer, a former Liberal senior cabinet member had quit the Liberal Party after being defeated by Pierre Trudeau in the 1968 Liberal leadership election. Hellyer sat as an independent Member of Parliament, and began his attempt to form his own political party in early June 1971. The party was to advocate putting more money in circulation to reduce unemployment, and using wage and price controls to prevent inflation from occurring.
If you tell your spouse you love them, but never buy them a gift, or lift a finger around the house, or go on a date with them, or show any kind of affection, your words will seem hollow. While love is an emotion, a thing of the heart, it naturally expresses itself with actions. In writing his epistle to Titus, the apostle Paul makes this point in speaking about our relationship to Jesus Christ. He says this in Titus 1:15-16: “To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.” Paul’s point is this – if we have been transformed by Jesus Christ it will have a direct impact on how we live our lives. What do your actions say to you and others about the change that Jesus has made in you? My prayer daily is that nothing I say or do will deny the Lord Jesus and prevent others from seeing Him in me.
These have been words from the heart.
