As I look upon the days ahead with the team from Biola, I began this morning by reflecting upon Psalm 24. There are two verses that stand out in this psalm that I believe are foundational to the way that we seek to live a life of worship.
“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it…”
“Who may ascend the hill of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? 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.”
Such is the place that I desire to be, that we should all desire to be. Firstly, to recognise that the Lord God is sovereign over all thing – including each one of us who live in this world. Secondly, it is those who seek integrity and righteousness who stand before the Lord. Much more can be send in great depth, but this is the right place that we should seek to be in as we desire to live our life in worship to the Almighty God.
