Create in them pure hearts, O God, and let their purity of heart be shown in their actions.
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.
1 Peter 2:11
Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.
