Psalm 15 is a pleasant surprise along my quest for holiness. After a long lists of things that we can probably almost all agree are morally true, David concludes, “Whoever does these things will never be shaken.” I want that. I desire to have a faith that cannot be shaken.
What the psalmist longed for has happened! Out of Israel, out of the line of Jacob through David, salvation has come through Jesus Christ the Messiah. As Christians, we believe this to be true. We have the most reason to rejoice with Jacob and be glad with Israel because we can see the whole story.
