Thought For Today - Who Shall Abide In Thy Tabernacle ?
"Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor. In whose eyes a vile person is condemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved." Psalm 15.
God cannot fellowship with sin, therefore if we have any vestige of sin in our lives, we cannot expect to enjoy the full fellowship of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, even though we may be the children of God. We ought to examine ourselves daily and keep short accounts with God so that we will be able to abide with God and dwell in his holy hill. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9.
Lets daily ask ourselves these questions, and if we find ourselves guilty, let us judge ourselves that we be not judged, and ask God's forgiveness: Do I walk uprightly? Do I the works of righteousness? Do I speak truth in my heart? Do I back bite with my tongue? Do I do evil to my neighbor? Do I take a reproach against my neighbor? Do I keep my word even to my own hurt? Do I fear the Lord and do I honor all them that do fear the Lord?
"He that doeth these things shall never be moved."
