WHAT DOES THE LORD REQUIRE OF US?
Some stores require people to wear shirts and shoes in order to get service… even computers have requirements to run some systems. Some jobs require a high school diploma, some a college degree, etc. Sometimes the requirement is 5 years’ experience in the field. Section 1 of Article 2 of the U.S. Constitution states that in order to be President a person must: be a natural born citizen of the United States, be at least 35 years old and must have lived in the U.S. for at least 14 years.
So what does God require of us in order to for us to be acceptable to Him or approved by Him? Micah 6:8 has the answer but what does it mean?
I. DO JUSTLY
1. A Biblical question (Job 25:4, Lk. 12:20, Dt. 10:12, 18:18-19)
2. A Biblical answer (Ps. 143:1-3, Lk. 12:48]
3. A Divine solution (Hab. 2:4, Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10:38)
II. LOVE MERCY (in loving it we must…)
1. Embrace it personally (Titus 3:4-7)
2. Rejoice in the Author (Luke 1:46-50, 58)
3. Share the Author (II Cor. 4:1-7, Ez. 3:18-20)
III. WALK HUMBLY WITH THY GOD
1. Walk to Him (salvation) (II Cor. 5:7, 17, 21)
2. Walk with Him (submission) (1 Cor. 4:2; Rm. 4:12, 6:4, 8:1-4, 13:13, I Jn. 1:6-7)
3. Walk for Him (service) (Eph. 2:8-10, 4:1-2ff, 5:1-2ff, 8-15)
