Authentic trust in His perfection (covering us)

This young girl was teaching me how to read the Luganda version of John 3:16. Her head was sparkly with glitter (for winning one of the games we had just played) and her voice was so intent on passing this beautiful scripture on to me! Her victorious presence reminded me of this Psalm giving us hope that with clean hands, pure heart we can ascend the hill of the Lord. Make no mistake that it is not our “filthy rag righteousness” giving us access but our trust in His righteous act! Jesus is God’s Son and our Savior from sin’s penalty. Authenticity is what He requires of us. – Teresa #foolingnoone #therealthing #glitteronourheads #Hisvictoryoveryou

Psalm 24 English Standard Version (ESV)

The King of Glory

A Psalm of David.

24 

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof,[a]

    the world and those who dwell therein,

for he has founded it upon the seas

    and established it upon the rivers.

Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?

    And who shall stand in his holy place?

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.

He will receive blessing from the Lord

    and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

Such is the generation of those who seek him,

    who seek the face of the God of Jacob.[b] Selah

Lift up your heads, O gates!

    And be lifted up, O ancient doors,

    that the King of glory may come in.

Who is this King of glory?

    The Lord, strong and mighty,

    the Lord, mighty in battle!

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
