1John 3:2-3 The Crystal Purity of ChristNear White Sands New Mexico is an ancient lake basin where annual mineral deposits from spring run offs form large gypsum crystals. They lie partially buried in the rich soil so when you pick one up they are caked in dirt. But slices are easily fractured off showing their pure even translucent quality. The Bible tells us that although we are mud caked with sin we have not appeared as yet what we shall be. But when Jesus appears we will be like him, and see Him just as he is. It is a motivational hope to fracture off the dirt, and be pure, just as He is pure. This is Dr. Jay Quine. Don’t focus on the dirt, but fix your hope on the pure, translucent, crystal beauty of Christ. Let His light shine through you.
