I am literally on an airplane hoping to finish this post before the door closes. So I’d better just jump right in…
Here’s what I heard in Psalm 15:
Scripture: Psalm 15
The whole thing really grabbed me, rather than just one verse.
You can read all of Psalm 15 on Bible Gateway.
(Please take the time to click over and read it or read it in your favorite app or Bible.)
Those that get to hang out with the Lord are:
- speak truth
- don’t lie or speak poorly of others
- fear the Lord
- keep their word
- help others without goal of personal gain
In some ways, this is an overwhelming passage. It is a list of attributes that, of course, I aspire to, but so very often come short. I cannot do it all.
And then the really good part of it all got me:
with Jesus, I AM blameless and righteous and He will guide me in working toward the rest.
I need to lean on Him– and he offers peace and all sorts of goodness.
Thank you, Lord, for giving me these things to aspire too and your grace and love.
I want to dwell with you. Thank you for your Son so that I can.
Please guide me in living the life you have intended for me and finding joy in working towards that life every day.
