Who May Ascend the Mountain of the LORD?

Psalm 24 gives us the answer:

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.

As a Christian, we know that this is not of our own. For we are not born with clean hands, or pure hearts. It is only by grace through faith in Christ, that I can have clean hands and a pure heart. Reading a verse like this makes aware of how utterly sinful I am apart from the rightouesness of Christ. I am reminded of how sinful I am when I forget about Christ in how I live.

It would be easy for me to say that I only struggle with one thing, but it seems like there are so many things. Very little things, like impatience, bitterness, hate, apathy. I used to think the only thing I struggled with was lust. That was the big thing. But, there is so much more stuff. So much sin. I pray that God will make me in practice what I am positionally in His eyes through Christ.
