Psalm 11 reveals to us that God sits on the throne of heaven, and tests the children of man. When we enter heaven to worship on the Lord’s Day, we stand before the face of God, and He tests our hearts for righteousness, because He loves righteous deeds, and hates wickedness.This means that Church is not a safe place to be. Going to Church should terrify us, were it not for the holiness that our Savior works into our lives, revealing through our actions the reality of new creation life. But because of the work of Christ, we boldly stand under the gaze of God, and offer up our worship and praise in faith.
