THE WILL OF GOD


Micah 6:8  He has showed thee, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justly, and love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?


God has already showed us what his will is.  He has   spoken it in our ear, he has whispered it to our spirit, and he has written it on our hearts. People have asked me from time to time, “Is it right to do this or that?”  And I would ask “What do you think?”  They  already know the answer.

In a speech on June 8, 1783, George Washington declared that this was his favorite verse of scripture.  And to think about it, if weonly had these three things to concern ourselves with; it would be sufficient.

Do what is just. 

Do it consistently and  always.  Do it with passion, and fervor   following God’s laws and precepts would  fulfill the outward keeping of the law.

Love Mercy. 

More than anything in life, you would extend mercy to others, not giving what they deserve but showing them God’s love would fulfill the inward keeping of the heart.

Walk humbly with God.  Not ever thinking of self, but of God and all others fulfills all that the law commands.

                                             Examine yourself.  Ouch!
