Love Where You Live

Sunday:  “Life’s Ultimate Q and A”  (Psalm 15)

Introduction:  When we are young, we want to have all the answers.  As we get older we learn that it is more important to ask right questions.  The right answer to the wrong question is the wrong answer.

Of all the the right questions to ask, Psalm 15:1 is the most important.
“O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?”
In other words….Who can live in God’s presence?  Who can go to Heaven?

The ultimate question requires the ultimate answer.  The psalmist provides that answer in four parts.

I.  The right CHARACTER part of the answer  (Vs. 2)

A.  The godly person lives a life of genuine INTEGRITY.
B.  The godly person does what is RIGHT.
C.  The godly person speaks the TRUTH.

II.  The right RELATIONSHIP part of the answer  (Vs. 3)

A.  The godly person does not SLANDER others.
B.  The godly person PROTECTS his/her neighbors.
C.  The godly person is LOYAL.

III.  The right HEART part of the answer  (Vs. 4)

A.  The godly person hates SIN.
B.  The godly person loves the RIGHTEOUS.
C.  The godly person keeps his/her WORD.

IV.  The right approach to MONEY part of the answer  (Vs. 5)

A.  The godly person does not use the power of money to take ADVANTAGE of people.
B.  The godly person does not use the power of money to pervert the TRUTH.
