There is a holiness of heart and there is a holiness of life.  These two are to be joined.  Without desire for holiness of heart, holiness of life is a futile attempt at works righteousness.  When the heart is pure, then a holy life will follow.  Father cleanse my heart and it will be holy, pure and clean.  Enable me to live out what you are doing in me.  May I do this in humility and without any tint of feeling that I am better than anyone else, even the worst of sinners.  Amen!

“Let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”  Hebrews 10:22 (NASB)
