Many blessings are promised to the ones named in the Beatitudes. But the pure in heart are told that they will “see God.” That is an amazing promise, indeed! What does this mean for us here in the world? Matt, Alastair, and Derek discuss this plus the concept of purity generally in the Old Testament and in the Gospel.
