Truthfulness Leads To Holiness

Post by watchman on Wed Jan 07, 2009 1:46 pm

Scripture: Psalms24:3 Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
4 Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
who do not worship idols
and never tell lies.
5 They will receive the Lordís blessing
and have a right relationship with God their savior.

We cannot even find the hill of the Lord, much less ascend it, if
there is deceit in our heart.
How does one serve in God's holy place
if his soul is unclean? It is only the pure in heart who perceive
God. To ascend toward God is to walk into a furnace of truth where
falsehood is extracted from our souls. To abide in the holy place we
must dwell in honesty, even when a lie might seem to save us. Each
upward step upon the hill of God is a thrusting of our souls into
greater transparency, a more perfect view into the motives of our
hearts. It is this upward call of God which we pursue. Yet, the soul
within us is hidden, hiding in fear and darkness, living in a
world of untruth and illusion, a facade. This is our inner man, the soul God
seeks to save. Have you discovered your true self, the inner person
whom truth alone can free? Yes, we seek holiness, but true holiness
comes from here; it comes as the Spirit of Truth unveils the hidden
places in our hearts. Indeed, it is truthfulness which leads to
holiness.

God, grant us a zeal for truth that we may stand in Your holy place!

Watchman, thank you and very well said. God has been working on me to seek purity and know without a doubt as you seek purity in all things with your self and with all your heart, your walk with Jesus will be stronger than it ever was. Blessings will manifest!!

Thank you. I am generally (I really try very hard) honest. But, I wondered why honesty was so important. Thanks again. I am going to read your words again!
