Psalm 24:1-6 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
1 The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the LORD; 2 for He laid its foundation on the seas and established it on the rivers. 3 Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in His holy place? 4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not set his mind on what is false, and who has not sworn 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.
With the blood sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus, we can stand before our father. Without Jesus, we would be unable to even approach our Heavenly Father. Thank you Jesus for taking our punishment so we can spend eternity with you.
