Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? In other words, who will spend eternity with God? In this message, Alistair Begg exhorts us to take a “spiritual CAT scan”—to examine ourselves in light of that very question. While it is true that works will not earn us entry into the kingdom of God, our deeds are often evidence of the fact that we are truly God’s own. If there has not been significant life change on account of meeting and submitting to Jesus, we have reason to consider whether our faith is genuine.
1O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
2He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;
3who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
5who does not put out his money at interest
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.
