To see God
“Who may ascend the hill of the Lord?
Who may stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart.”
- Psalm 24:3,4 NIV
“Are you among these 'pure in heart,'
who are to 'see God'?
Remember the Bible's solemn warning,
'Without holiness no man shall see the Lord.'
Remember its solemn admonition,
'And every man who has this hope fixed on Him,
purifies himself even as He is pure.'
To 'see God!'
Oh, what preparation is needed
for so magnificent a contemplation!
Infinite unworthiness and nothingness,
to stand in the presence of
Infinite Majesty, Purity, and Glory!”
- John MacDuff
“And this is the testimony:
God has given us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
He who has the Son has life;
he who does not have the Son of God
does not have life.
I write these things to you who believe
in the name of the Son of God
so that you may know
that you have eternal life.”
- 1 John 5:11-13 NIV
