continue in my presence…

I will sing of loyalty and of justice; to you, O LORD, I will sing. I will study the way that is blameless. When shall I attain it? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; I will not set before my eyes anything that is base. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me. Perverseness of heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. One who secretly slanders a neighbor I will destroy. A haughty look and an arrogant heart I will not tolerate. I will look with favor on the faithful in the land, so that they may live with me; whoever walks in the way that is blameless shall minister to me. No one who practices deceit shall remain in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue in my presence. Morning by morning I will destroy all the wicked in the land, cutting off all evildoers from the city of the LORD. (Psalm 101, NRSV)

We all want to be with God.

We all want eternity to be with our creator.

So we try to live a life that will be pleasing to Him…

But have you ever:

Lied?

Been blamed for something?

Fallen away from God?

Slandered a neighbor behind their back?

looked haughtily on someone?

I am not sure any of us can say no to all of those statements and if we are honest with ourselves we can not probably say no to any of them…

We have all fallen short. And for us to stay in God’s presence we must not do any of those things.

But thankfully our God goes with us, even when we fall away!
