Worthy?

"Lord, who can dwell in Your tent? Who can live in Your holy mountain?" 
Psalm 15:1

Psalm 15 goes to the heart of humanity's deepest problem-is anyone worthy of living in heaven with God? You are told that you must be honest and kind and that you must be keep all the Lord's commandments and never do wrong to others. Reviewing these requirements, you may question whether you can truly meet God's standards.
That is as it should be. The inability to be good enough makes you aware of your need for God's help, which He graciously provided through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.
When you trust Him for salvation, God covers you with His righteousness and makes you worthy of dwelling with God for eternity. So believe in Him, trusting His provision. Because then you can rest in His goodness forever.
