The Earth is the Lord's
Sometimes we become boastful of all that we are and of all that we possess, forgetting that our lives, our bodies, and all that we have belong to God, and have been entrusted to us by God to be used for his glory.
Every thing and every living creature belongs to God. He has the sovereign right to do with it as he wills. "The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart: who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation." Psalm 24: 1-5
This disqualifies all of us: for no one can say that he has clean hands and hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, except, of course, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He only is perfectly clean and righteous, and he only is the door, and through him is the only way to enter into the presence of God and enjoy heaven eternally.
