A Dip into the Depths

Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? … The one who has clean hands and a pure heart.—Psalm 24:3-4

If we take an honest and straightforward look at what is going on inside us, we must be ready for a number of strong spiritual challenges. But we must not allow ourselves to be disheartened, for in looking at our hearts we become ready to move upwards into the mountains of God.

The suggestion I want to make to you is this—recognize the subtle and insidious nature of sin. There is a view in the Christian church that as long as we focus on the sins that are obvious (sins of behavior), then we can forget any hidden sins that may be in the heart, trusting God to deal with them in His own way. Dealing with obvious sin is extremely important—don’t hear me minimizing this fact. Moral discipline is part of the Christian commitment. We are expected to resist the temptations that come our way and correct any spiritual violations that may occur. But to concern ourselves only with obvious sin and avoid facing the sins of the heart will cause us to miss our footing on the slopes of God.

Someone has put it like this: “The grime has been so embedded in the carpet that a simple vacuuming will not do the job. We need a scrubbing brush and a strong detergent.” Diligence in putting right the things that are obviously wrong is good, but without a clear understanding of how sin has penetrated our hearts, we will be nothing more than surface-copers.


Father, forgive me that I have been so content to live on the surface of life. Help me see that, in turning my gaze to what is going on inside me, You are not seeking to demean me but to develop me. Give me grace not to shrink from the task. Amen.

Father, help us to deal with those hidden sin only you see in Jesus Name. Do not allow us to sweep it under the carpet but we must put up effort to get rid of it from our lives in Jesus Name.

Blessed Redeemer we thank You, we bless Your Holy Name. help us O God in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
