“But when the Holy Spirit comes into me, He brings into the center of my personal life the very Spirit that was exhibited in the life of Jesus Christ, namely, the Holy Spirit, which is absolute unblemished purity.” Oswald Chambers, http://utmost.org/the-way-to-purity/
A very similar post as to yesterday by Chambers. We are always striving to be good or to be holy and pure, but it is not ours to be had. We can only thrive in goodness and purity when we seek God through Jesus Christ and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. I know this from my own experience. Examine your own experiences, and be honest about what you find.
