God wants to transform our lives. The transformed life has obvious marks about it. Psalm 15 spells these out:
- the right attitude towards God (2)
- care for neighbors (3)
- a proper view of life (despising evil, honoring God; 4a)
- integrity before God (4b)
- refusal to take advantage of others (5)
"Whoever does these things will never be shaken" (6).
I could go on at length about these things, writing an entire blog or sermon series. But at some point we need to wrestle with the idea that following God, and being drawn closer to him, is within our grasp. It is a matter of setting our minds to follow him.
He has given us clear ideas of what to do. Let us line up the direction of our lives to be those who "dwell in [his] sacred tent" (1).
Which of these areas will you begin to work in and on? What will your plan to be to draw closer to God?
