Sin, the great blindness!!!

MATTHEW 5 : 8 NKJV
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.

So those who are not pure in heart can not see God. Does this mean that a person who can not physically see God is not pure in heart? I believe that it means that the more pure a person's heart is, the more that that person can know God. What then is it to be pure in heart? How then can one become pure in heart if they are not already?

PROVERBS 23 : 26 NKJV
26 My son, give me your heart,
And let your eyes observe my ways.

Our heavenly Father desires of us, that we would give Him all of our hearts. In doing this we will then obey Him in all things. (Having our eyes observing His ways. Therefore seeing the way that He desires us to go and walking in that.)

JAMES 4 : 8
8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Is the law abolished for believers in Jesus Christ?

ROMANS 6 : 14 -15 NKJV
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. From Slaves of Sin to Slaves of God15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!
Many also do not understand the grace of God. The grace of God is the power of God for a believer to overcome sin and walk in the Holiness of God. It is not a title given to a believer relieving them of all of the consequences of their sin. Verse 15 says that it is not okay to sin. In fact, if one indeed sins, then that one is not under grace but will be judged according to the law. Sin is deliberate disobedience to God.
