Serving Absolutes


"He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8).

I have used Micah 6:8 several times in sermons that I have preached because it is such a wonderful way that we are told about what God wants from us. The third virtue that Micah mentions is all about humility. Walk humbly with your God.... Is this a description of our relationship with the Lord? Jesus describes what this humble and obedient relationship ought to be in Lk.17:10. "So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have done only our duty.'" This is a large part of what the servant relationship is really all about. It is doing what we are supposed to do... Absolute obedience to the Lord and what He wants of us is simply not in the realm of possibility without us having a humble opinion of ourselves. If we complain and murmur about what Jesus tells us to do, how can we be the humble and obedient servants that He wants us to be? If we are negligent or lazy in our servitude, how can we carry out His will? We become Jesus' servants freely, and in that a loyalty to Him is expected.... Lets face the bold truth of the matter.... If we do not serve the Lord with loyalty, humility, and obedience, we are being Satan's pawns. We are serving the world instead of Jesus. Whenever there is even an inkling of a doubt about who we should serve, Micah is there to remind us of what the Lord requires of us....To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with the Lord... I just can't say it any better than that....

Have a great day... Let His light shine through you.... Love mark Phil.4:11
