Psalm 15, and the Way of Trust

Many of our recent Scripture lessons have reminded us that God’s ways frequently differ from the ways of those who do not trust in God, or God’s provision.  St. Paul tells us that Christian preaching often seems foolishness to unbelievers, but nevertheless reveals both the wisdom, and the power of God.  If the Season of Epiphany is meant to remind us that God’s wisdom helps banish the world’s darkness, then Psalm 15 can be seen as a practical manual for applying God’s wisdom to our daily lives.

Imagine how the world would be different if everyone alive took the teaching of Psalm 15 to heart.  Certainly, you and I who have trusted our lives to Jesus should take it to heart, if we seek to claim the abundant life Jesus offers (John 10.10).  Psalm 15 tells us how the Christian believer will act:
She will walk blamelessly;
He will speak truth;
He will not gossip or slander;
She will not offer or take bribes;
She will do right;
He will keep his word;
We will do no evil.

All of us together will be righteous in God’s eyes, because we choose the way of the Cross.
