The Character of Those Who May Dwell with the Lord

Psalm 15:1-51 Kings 8:60-61

Lord, who shall dwell [temporarily] in Your tabernacle?

Who shall dwell [permanently] on Your holy hill?

He who walks and lives uprightly and blamelessly,

Who works rightness and justice and speaks and thinks the truth in his heart,

He who does not slander with his tongue,

Nor does evil to his friend,

Nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;

In whose eyes a vile person is despised, but he who honors those who fear the Lord (who revere and worship Him);

Who swears to his own hurt and does not change;

He who does not put out his money for interest [to one of his own people] and

Who will not take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things shall never be moved.

Character of the New Man

Colossians 3:12-17I Corinthians 13:4-8
Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by]

Tenderhearted Pity 

Mercy

Kind Feeling

A Lowly Opinion of yourselves

Gentle Ways

Patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper].

Be gentle and forbearing with one another and, if one has a difference (a grievance or complaint) against another, readily pardoning each other; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven you, so must you also [forgive].

And above all these [put on] love and enfold yourselves with the bond of perfectness [which binds everything together completely in ideal harmony].

And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ’s] one body you were also called [to live].   And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts.

And whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him.

    Amen! This is how all of us who truly serve, love, and honor the Lord should be. If so many angry people, or people who are filled with hatred and bitterness could find the love of the Lord and not just love Him…but fall in love with Him..that is the key.
