About me

Hello

I'mSheldon Clowdus

Disciple, Husband, Father

I am a disciple of Jesus, a husband of 18 years, and a father to 4 children. I teach math and science to 3rd graders here in Rome, Georgia. This blog is where I chronicle my journey as a believer, opine about the church, and talk about whatever else I may muster up the enthusiasm to write about. Thanks for stopping by and I hope what you read edifies and entertains you.

The Gospel

1. God is the Creator of All Things

Genesis 1:1

God created everything, including mankind. He created mankind to govern the earth for him, as his ambassadors.

2. Cosmic Treason

Romans 5:12

Unfortunately, mankind,through Adam and Eve, rebelled against God. Sin entered the world through their disobedience and severed the relationship between man and his Creator.

3. Grace

Ephesians 2:4-5

God demonstrated His mercy and love by sending His very own Son to die a horrible death on a cross so that we might be saved from the just penalty of our rebellion against God.

4. Eternal Life

John 3:16

Now, for those who repent of their sin and turn to God, there is the assurance of forgiveness and an eternity spent in His presence.

Who Can Ascend God's Holy Hill?


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.
He will receive blessing from the Lord
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Such is the generation of those who seek him,
 who seek the face of the God of Jacob.

The selection of scripture above is what I read yesterday in Psalm 24:3-6. As I read it, a sinking feeling began to form deep in my heart.  You see, I want to ascend the hill of the Lord and I long to stand in His holy place.  Only as I read this Psalm I knew that I could not.

I did not have clean hands.
I did not have a pure heart.
I do sometimes lift up my soul to what is false.
I swear deceitfully.

I am not worthy to ascend the hill or stand in the holy place and no amount of effort or work on my part will ever change that.

What hope is there for a sinner like me?

There is hope only in the cross........
There is hope only in a God who became flesh.......
There is hope only in a High Priest who bore the wrath of God for me.......
There is hope only in a perfect Savior who gives me His righteousness.......

I am not worthy to ascend the hill or stand in the holy place and no amount of effort or work on my part will ever change that.

Praise God that Jesus Christ is worthy!
In Christ I can ascend the hill.
In Christ I stand in the holy place.

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. -- 2 Corinthians 5:21
