Notes

Psalms 24:1-10

The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, 2 for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers. 3 Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? 4 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. 5 He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah7 Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle! 9 Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory! Selah

Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?

What’s the main difference between those who seek God’s face and those who don’t?

It’s the purity of their heart.

Blessed are the pure in heart…for they shall see God.

Keys to Purity:

1) Look to the one who purifies

2) Repent from idols

3) Get faith off of yourself

And we must look to Christ "who gave himself for us . . . to purify for himself a people" (Titus 2:14)

"Create in me a clean heart, O God" (Psalm 51:10)

"Strive for . . . the holiness without which no one will see the Lord." (Hebrews 12:14)

Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart (Matthew 22:37)
