Chapter-a-Day Psalm 15

Invitation God, who gets invited to dinner at your place? How do we get on your guest list? Psalm 15:1 (TM)

What a great question. The interesting thing about this Psalm is that David goes on to offer his ideas on the things that will earn a place on God’s guest list, and yet if he thought about his own life he would realize that he made God’s guest list when Samuel anointed him king as a young shepherd boy. God graciously invited him to dinner and appointed him a place of honor and it didn’t have a thing to do with what David had done – or had not done. God blessed David throughout his life and honored him by "establishing his throne forever" and proclaiming Jesus the "son of David". Again, this had nothing to do with what David had done or had not done.

If you’re wondering what to do to get on God’s invitation list – relax. You’re invited.
