Psalm 15

I had the privilege of preaching from Psalm 15 this morning. An excerpt from my manuscript:
Here in Psalm 15, we encounter a description of what God expects of those who would dwell with Him. God is not just giving us suggestions or recommendations. Rather, He requires a kind of character from those who would live with Him. God is a holy God and anyone whose life does not bear these marks will ultimately be rejected by Him.

And this is an astonishing truth: God cares about how we live. Given all that is going on in the world today (global warming, bio-genetic engineering, political upheavals), isn’t it amazing to think that the God of the Universe is concerned about how you live? And He’s not so much concerned about your professional resume, or your financial portfolio, or your academic background…but rather He’s deeply concerned about the character of your life. Your decisions, your actions, your words matter to God. And the life you live now will have implications into eternity for your relationship with God.
Listen to the rest here.
