Mattie Montgomery preached a great Word from the Lord Sunday morning at His Tabernacle in Horseheads NY.
As believers there are three things that should be resident in us as God’s children. We are called the reflection of Jesus to this world and we must be able to mirror our Messiah’s character, passion and capabilities.
Ps. 24:3-5, Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? 4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord, And righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Who will climb the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in the holy place? It is not just anyone that is given the right to be in the presence of the Lord. It is those who have clean hands and a pure heart.
Matt. 5:8, Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
It is not just that you have clean hands! It is not just that you are doing good things! What matters is that your heart and your motives are pure in your heart. Everything that we do comes from the heart! Everything we speak comes from the heart! So this is not just about doing good things, and being a nice person, but this is about our hearts!
Do we really love our God? Is our heart after Him? Is He our focus? Is Father God our priority?
We all want the blessing, but before the blessing can come, we must check our hands and our hearts!
PURITY, NOT PERFECTION, PLEASES OUR KING!
Come be with us at His Tabernacle Family Church every Sunday at 9am or 11am.
