What Does God Want from Me?

Micah 6:6-8.  Micah’s plea was a passionate call for a return to godliness, to moral and ethical conduct. God’s people were religious, but they were not pleasing to Him (6:6-7; Prov 6:16-19). The answer to Micah’s question is as relevant today as ever. “What does the Lord require?”

I. “TO DO JUSTICE”

A. Israel’s injustice (Micah 3:2–4)

B. God’s justice (Psalm 89:13–16; 33:5; 72:2; 106:3; Deut 10:18)

C. Pharisees’ injustice (Matt 23:23)

II. “TO LOVE MERCY”

A. Kindness, Favor, Compassion

B. Mercy, Grace, Peace (2 John 3)

C. Mercy for Humility (Luke 18:13)

D. Mercy for Mercy (Heb 4:16; Matt 5:7)

III. “TO WALK HUMBLY WITH GOD”

A. Obedient (2 Cor 5:6–8)

B. Trustworthy (Matt 23:23)

C. Subservient (Phil 2:2-3; Rom 12:3)

Three attributes that will prepare us to follow our Lord.
