Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
It is only because of Jesus that anyone can be seen as having “clean hands and a pure heart”. He is the master key that opens the floodgates of God’s grace and allows the power of God to be perfected in our weakness. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, who ever teaches and instructs our hearts and minds, we are able to live transformed as a new creation. Through faith in Christ Jesus, we can be new creations who are able to stand in His holy place. It is Jesus Christ who justifies and qualifies us before God.
