WHO MAY DWELL IN YOUR HOLY HILL?

With the passing of time we have come to realise that we are living in a world of constant change. Godly principles and values that were once embraced and practised by people to be the only way of life are almost non-existent. The statistics of crime, which include murder, rape and a host of other evil things, continue to show an increase. Churches that once were filled with people seeking God, are now empty, with sport stadiums being filled instead. We are warned of all of this in 2nd Timothy 3:1-4. However, the choice is ours who we will serve.

What I like about reading God’s word is, that the more we delve into it, the more we are see the way Christians should live awaiting their soon coming King. When reading through Psalm 15 especially through verse 1, I seem to think that David, who wrote this psalm, was busy communicating with God when certain thoughts flashed through his mind. It could only be God who made David ask the question about eternity. Verse 1 “Lord who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill?” The only thing I could think of was the place where God dwells, heaven, God’s kingdom. Where there is a kingdom, there are citizens who dwell in that kingdom. The sobering thought is what requirements are expected of us to inherit the Kingdom of God. Well the answer is simple. Verse 2 of Psalm 15 has the answer. “He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous.” As Christians we need to be transparent so that the world can see Jesus in our lives.

When Judy and I were on honeymoon down in Cape Town, busy sightseeing, we were approached by a little Malay boy selling fruit. At the same time two “Duck tail” hooligans went towards the little Malay boy. One of the Duck tails grabbed a lovely big peach without paying for it and was about to eat it when I challenged this individual to either pay for what he had taken or give it back to the seller. By that time I was ready for a fight. Nevertheless the hooligan got the message and replaced the peach. As Christians we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that allowing Christ to be in control of our lives, and not submitting to evil desires, we have a permanent place to dwell in called Heaven with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I end by encouraging you to read Jude 1 verses 24&25.

Verse of the day

You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.
