“O LORD, who shall sojourn in Your tent?” Is it easy for mortals to dwell with the everlasting God? David gave some specific requirements in Psalm 15. The person who would dwell in the Lord’s house would have to meet God’s high standards of thinking, speaking, and living.
The Lord demanded that those who would live in communion with Him would have merciful and respectful relationships with one another. God also required that all who would love Him would make a distinction between ungodly people committed to evil abuse and worshipers of the Lord who were dedicated to growth in holiness. If anyone wanted to be with God, he needed to stay true to the commitments he made to others and not be ruled by the love of money.
Psalm 15 ends with these words, “He who does these things shall never be moved.” Jesus of Nazareth was a perfect example of what true stability is. He kept His Word to the Father despite the cost. He has become the Cornerstone of His church.
Our Savior’s obedience for us was entirely solid. Because of what He has accomplished, all those who turn to Him in truth can dwell with God forever.

Lord God, may we live with You forever in Jesus? He was without sin and has called us friends. He shall never be moved, and so we have peace.
