1 The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the waters.
3 Who may ascend the hill of the LORD ?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to an idol
or swear by what is false. [a]
5 He will receive blessing from the LORD
and vindication from God his Savior.
6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,
who seek your face, O God of Jacob. [b]
This encourages me to want to improve and make myself better for Him. This, of course, is not emphasis on good works, no. It's a direct result of the grace that saves us and renders us free from sin. When we seek God with a pure heart, our actions will naturally follow from that pure heart.
Thanks again to Henry and Tom Blackaby, and God bless your day, everyone.
