Verse: Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Insight: As Christians, we want to be in the presence of God. Our sinfulness hinders us from sensing His Spirit. However, the more we seek Him with all of our hearts, the more we will surrender our sinful thoughts and a desire for obedience and to worship Him will grow. His grace endures forever and our grateful hearts will move us towards a lifestyle of worship.
Prayer: Loving and graceful God. I thank you for teaching me how to get closer to you. Cleanse my heart and make it white as snow. Purify my lips so that only praises will flow out of my mouth. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
