Jesus paid the supreme price,
giving His life for us so that we might be saved.All that happened was fulfillment of Old Testament

David reminded us that those
who desire to shall stand in His holy place must come with clean hands, and a

Consider what Jesus has
accomplished for you; Who He is, and Who we are in Him.
