Those who will live in the holy mountain of God

Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?
Who may live on your holy mountain?

Psalm 15:1

Psalm 15 begins with two great questions from the psalmist David to God: “Who shall dwell in your tabernacle? Who shall dwell in your holy mountain?”. The answer comes immediately in verse two:

The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;

Psalm 15:2

With this we understand that the psalmist wants to teach us that we should be pure and clean in order to enter into the presence of God, because this way we can receive His holy anointing without problems, and we will receive His presence and it will run through our interior.

It is good that each day we ask God to help us lead a holy and pure life before Him, because if we are pure of heart, we will not lie, nor will have a grudge in our hearts, and this is because God is within us.

whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;

Psalm 15:3

Today we see these practices in many people, whose thoughts are only evil continually, and this is something that does not please God. So it is good that we are wise in the Lord and think about turning to Him wholeheartedly.

Be holy, because I am Holy
Words that are life

    Who should live in the presence of God, in his Holy Mountain?
    The psalmist David says:
    “The one whose walk is blameless,
    who does what is righteous,
    who speaks the truth from their heart; Psalm 15:2

    0Is there anyone, man or woman, that may gather all this, as Adam’s children that we are?
    Really no, the teaching we have received from the Bible is that there is no man or woman who can walk in a blameless way. It is known that everyone is born in sin and is an enemy of God.

    The apostle Paul speaks on the basis of the revelation of God to the prophets and writes:
    “They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that does good, no, not one.” (Romans 3:12).

    History tells us about people who, fearful of God, try to achieve perfection to dominate their bodies by penance, days fasting, by prayers and by battering themselves to mortify the body, but they don’t achieve to walk in a blameless way (we could read something of that in reformer Martin Luther biography).

    The reformer Luther, after trying his hardest to change his condition of sinner, did not find peace for bis soul. He read the Bible, the Devil tried to separate him from God, but the power of God lead him to truly know the Lord Jesus Christ and His work at Calvary for sinners; and he discovered that only those who are cleaned with the blood of Jesus, the beloved Son of God, may walk blameless, be righteous people and speak the truth from their hearts. God, the Father, sees us in such a way.

    Our Father who is Heaven and may be everywhere, sees these people dressed in the justice and holiness of his Son Jesus, and he lets them live in His presence with Him in His Holy Mountain, in His glory.

    By the grace of God we can appropriate for ourselves the work of Jesus Christ, our saviour,
    “By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:2).

    May we be eternally grateful to the Holy Father who has loved us so much, by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
