Wesley's Notes for Psalms 24:3


24:3 The hill - Zion or Moriah, the place of God's sanctuary and special presence. Having asserted God's dominion over all mankind, he now proposes an important question, by whom God will be served, and his blessing enjoyed? Stand - To minister before him. Standing is the posture of ministers or servants. Who shall serve God, with God's acceptation. Holy place - In the place which he hath sanctified for his service.

    v 7 and 9 demonstrate that our father God is constantly standing by the doors of our hearts knocking wanting to dine with us. in other words God wants to sit in the golden chair of our hearts.......

    God is the only one who owns the earth and those who live in it, as Christian we must not be afraid of anything or anyone. Let us keep on praying and not forgetting to pray for our enemies so that they can see the light. Really indeed through us our enemies wil be saved and see the power of God.

    The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof...in other words God owns everything. But who can ascend to the hill? Meaning who can get in the presence of this great God...he who has clean hands and a pure heart...who does not seek out his own way...lifted up his soul to vanity. We must yield to God we must seek to keep ourselves pure and pleasing to God, then we receive the blessing. His favor
