JOHN SHIRK – From Micah 6:8.

“He has showed 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.”

Implications of acting justly include treating people with fairness and without discrimination based on racial background or economic status. Acting justly shows concern for the poor and takes a stand for innocent victims of injustice.

Loving mercy includes willingness to forgive the sins of others just as God forgave us. Another dimension of mercy is extending the kindness of God to a wounded soul.

Walking humbly with God acknowledges our own need for God’s grace and seeks to bring Him glory in our lives. We acknowledge His greatness and depend on His goodness. Where He leads us, we follow.

God has not left us without direction. He has provided a roadmap that reveals His good and pleasing purposes. The Bible is a valuable resource to guide us in the truth of God’s will.

Obedience to God’s Word is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

    God has been revealing to me my desperate lack of grace towards others. yet He has shown and given me grace undeserving. I am humbling myself and as I praise and thank Him for revealing this uncomfortable truth in myself…. I need to know and see so that He can continue His restoration of my heart. Thanks for this message! Blessings
