God’s Perfect Standard for Character

Psalm 15, NKJV

Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

He who walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart; 3 he who does not backbite with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor does he take up a reproach against his friend; 4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised, but he honors those who fear the Lord; hwho swears to his own hurt and does not change; 5 he who does not put out his money at usury, nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.  He who does these things shall never be moved.

Listen to “Never Be Shaken” by Judy Rogers, based on this Psalm

I only know of One who fit this description perfectly – Jesus, our Substitute, our Savior and Lord, our Example.  Through Him alone can we dwell on God’s holy hill.
