Psalm 15:1–5 (NIV): “Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain?
The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart; whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others; 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; 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.”
These five short verses asks the question who can commune with God, gives the answer, and then the promise of God. We get to sacred space of communing by walking blameless. Even this pandemic has shown us that there are some things we must do to enter a reputable business: wear a mask, take temperature, hand sanitizer, be socially distanced.
Why would we not think there are some thing we must do to meet God in that place? He rewards our efforts to walk in what he requires. And really, really, it’s not that hard, but we make it difficult.
He invites us into that space at any time. And the cool part about it is that nothing, no one can take it from us, from snatch us us from him.
Just as we check off what we need when we leave home, let’s check where we need strength, and give that place to God. And watch what he does. enough for now.
