The first Psalm of David is very significant. Coming up in the Psalter immediately after Psalm 14 about sinners, the Psalmist gives conditions to commune with God or to find His favour.
Ten conditions are given and they are:
He(or she) that walks uprightly;
He that is righteous;
He that does not backslide;
He that does no evil;
He that does not take up reproach against his neighbor;
He who condemns a vile (or evil) person;
He that honours and fears the Lord;
He that stands by his word or vow no matter the situation;
He who does not oppress the poor and the less-privileged in the society.
He who does not benefit by helping the innocent or accept bribe to do something.
Though there are a lot more that are expected of us as Christians, many of those who call themselves Christian will fail this test. Are you walking uprightly as a Christian? Are you righteous? Are you not a talebearer? Is it not only on Sundays that you behave as Christian? What happens in your business when you are the boss or in your business when you sell at highly inflated price? Do you say the truth especially where saying the truth may adversely affect your fortunes? When you make a vow, do you always fulfill it? Can you do self-examination as David did in Ps 26?
We need to do self-examination to find out if we are still on the side of Christ. If your score card is below God’s “cut-off mark” of 100 per cent, you need to put on the new man and put the old man in you to death.
Psalm 1:6 “For the Lord knows the ways of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”
Father, Eternal, help me to be counted worthy to reign eternally with You in heaven for Christ’s sake. Amen.
