  • Echad & Ashray
    Tuesday, November 2, 2021
    The Lord said, "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God." Purity is linked to oneness - being one hundred percent pure. The word in Hebrew for oneness, singleness of mind and heart, is Echad. It says, the Lord our God is Echad, one. "Blessed are" in Greek is makarios, in Hebrew it's ashray. Jesus is quoting a Psalm. Ashray means happy or joyful. Let's put it together. Happy or joyful are those who are pure in heart, who are single minded. In Hebrew, also means to be clean, clear and bright. Being single of heart is having one motive. A pure heart will be blessed, happy, and joyous. If you want joy, live a life of oneness, singleness of motive and action in your heart, mind, and in all things and you'll be blessed. Your heart will have joy. If your heart is single to God, your heart will be blessed with ashray. Blessed are the pure in heart, the single-minded, the single-hearted for God for they shall have joy because that's what blessed means. Be blessed. Be one. The power of being one.
    From Message #539 - The Power of Being one
    Today's Mission
    Today, make it your aim to live single-minded in everything you do - no ulterior motives - just pure and undivided motives for God.
