But in Songs of Solomon 6:9  says:

My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother.  The   favourite of the one who bore her.

Who can find her? Only Jesus Christ could find her. Jesus found her and   purchased her with great price of his precious blood. Hallelujah.

All these virtues are good which makes us a  good person. But without purity we cannot enter into heaven. Purity is one of the virtues. How can be a person  become pure ?

We cannot be pure by our own works because , ( Isaiah 64:6) says: But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. We cannot be pure by our own good works but only through Jesus Christ. When we wash our sins by the blood of Jesus Christ ,we will be pure in the sight of God.

Ephe:5:26,27

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word. That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Are you a person who has been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ? If not , confess your sin, and accept Jesus Christ as your saviour. Then you will become  a real virtuous person.
