Quoted from Micah 6:8, what does the Lord require of you?
This question can be answered in many ways, just a few include repentance, faithfulness and keeping God in first place. However, this sermon focuses on three of the more broader areas:
1) Do what is right and justly
2) Love and mercy
3) Walk humbly with God
Simple obedience and doing what is right and justly – Obeying God’s laws, doing what is right and justly is the foundation of Christian Living.
Love and mercy – Keep your eyes open to the world, care, have compassion, empathize, help in good works, be a good Samaritan, love the world and those in it.
Walk humbly with God – Acknowledge God, ask him to guide your path and submit to His will. Remember, our primary purpose is to glorify God. Psalm 148
8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly[a] with your God.
1 Praise the Lord.[a]
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights above.
2 Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his heavenly hosts.
3 Praise him, sun and moon;
praise him, all you shining stars.
4 Praise him, you highest heavens
and you waters above the skies.
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for at his command they were created,
6 and he established them for ever and ever—
he issued a decree that will never pass away.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding,
9 you mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
old men and children.
13 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
14 And he has raised up for his people a horn,[b]
the praise of all his faithful servants,
of Israel, the people close to his heart.
Praise the Lord.
