wearing his presence honorably

Psalm 48:8 (JDV)

Psalm 48:8 Just like we heard, that is what we have seen in the city of Yahveh of Armies, in the city of our God; God will establish it continually. Selah

wearing his presence honorably

The psalmist talks about the rumors he has heard of the glory and splendor of Jerusalem— how fitting and appropriate it is for God himself to reside there. Then he visited the great city and he found that all those rumors are true. He was not disappointed when he saw the real thing. The city wore God’s presence honorably.

We Christians make lots of claims about having God’s Holy Spirit live inside us as well. I wonder if we realize that people expect us to be the real thing.

“Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith. Examine yourselves. Or do you yourselves not recognize that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless you fail the test” 2 Corinthians 13:5 (CSB).

People should expect the best behavior and the best attitude from a life which possesses the Spirit of God.
