Psalm 24:3 “Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD?”
Though we are made to be near GOD, none of us has the truly clean hands and pure heart required to approach Him in His holiness. But GOD has provided One who can: JESUS, the “King of glory.” He has triumphed mightily over the forces of sin and death, and He has opened the way to heaven for us.
As we reflect on JESUS’ ascension after His glorious resurrection, we see that CHRIST JESUS has gone ahead of us so that we can be near GOD. Let us celebrate that finished work of CHRIST today and be blessed with His great accomplishment on the cross!
Dear HOLY SPIRIT, lift up our eyes toward JESUS, who is praying mightily for us today at the right hand of GOD (Romans 8:34). Purify our hearts and help us to trust in Him. In JESUS’ righteous Name. Amen.
