1 LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain?
2 The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the LORD;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.
David asks the question of questions… who can really be with God?
The answer is those who are consistent with His character.
Its the same question Job posed in Job 9. “who can be right before God”.
The stunning answer is that only those who are righteous can be with Him.
And none of us are righteous on our own. I can only walk blameless if I am forgiven.
Praise God, He has done it… Jesus paid my penalty.
How does my life reflect Him? Am I doing what is righteous? What comes from my tongue?
How do I treat my neighbor? Do I honor the Lord? Lend to the poor? Am I immune to bribery?
Lord Jesus, what you have done for me is transforming me. You are shining from within me and its truly incredible. May I never be shaken… not because I am great, but because You are in me.
