Numbers 28:1-31; Proverbs 24:1-34; Luke 2:1-21

Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it. Psalm 119:140

The Word of God is absolutely pure, free from any kind of distortion, error or contradiction. It also has a purifying effect upon those who read it prayerfully, regularly and systematically. Many shy away from reading it because it can be painful as it draws attention to our sins, failures and disobedience. However, it can bring washing and cleansing to us as we embrace its message and surrender to its truth through faith in Jesus Christ. —Paul Young

Purify my heart, cleanse me from within,
And make me holy.
Purify my heart, cleanse me from my sin,
Deep within. —Brian Doerksen
