Small Seed for 12-30-14

Entirely Pure and Devoted to God.

"May the God of peace himself make you entirely pure and devoted to God; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept strong and blameless until the day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes back again." 
1 Thessalonians 5:23

What jumps out to me in this verse is "entirely pure and devoted to God".  I want to be that.

Pure - like the white of snow (free of stains or blemishes)

Devoted - wholly seeking and working and pleasing. Heart, body, soul, mind, and strength. Everything.

How do I do become that? Well, the opening of the verse tells me how. God does it. "May the God of peace himself make you..." 

Heavenly Father, I can't do it myself. You are the one to make me "entirely pure and devoted" to you. Make it be so. In Jesus' name. Amen.

What stands out to you in this verse?
