The Blameless Heart

Pastor Jay continues his “Guard Your Heart” series this week, with a sermon titled “The Blameless Heart”, based on James 4:8 and Psalm 24:3-4.

James 4:8 (ESV)

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Psalm 24:3-4 (ESV)

Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD?
And who shall stand in his holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to what is false
and does not swear deceitfully.

Draw near to God with a blameless heart.

  • Because God is holy.
  • Because God commands us to be blameless when we come.
  • Because God has made provision for us to be blameless.
  • Because a blame-filled heart is unhealthy.
  • Because a blameless heart is at peace.
