Psalm 24 – Jesus Is Our Access

by | April 7, 2020


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 (Psalm 24:3)
Who can approach God? Well, the requirements are clear. The only person who can stand in the presence of God is the one who has “clean hands and a pure heart.” Unfortunately for all of us that means we would need to be perfect to approach God. If left to ourselves we would be under God’s judgement for our sin. But the good news is that there is one who stands before God blameless. His name is Jesus! 
1 Peter 2:22 says that Jesus “did not commit sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” He was perfect and he went to the cross for unclean people like you and me. He took on our sin and he gave us his righteousness. So now, all of those who believe in him, can ascend the hill of the Lord, stand in his presence, and turn away from what is false. Praise God for Jesus!
