“Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.” I Pe. 1:22-23
Christ only, can justify us before God, but when it comes to purifying our soul, it is our responsibility. We purify our souls by obeying the truth. Of course, we cannot do this without the Spirit’s help. Since we have His help, let’s obey the truth and walk in purity.
