Description

THE MICAH 6:8 MAN! 

A Man For The  MASTER 

The DIVINE Requirements

Micah 6:8

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? 

Question: What does it mean to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly (Micah 6:8)?"

# 1 “Act Justly” 

GOD TELLS US WHAT TO DO - ACT JUSTLY - OUR ACTION 

Galatians 6:7

Micah’s Preaching: Micah 3:9 

Isaiah’s Preaching:  Isaiah 59:14, 59:20

1.) Act Justly With God And His Holy Word.

2.) Act Justly With All People. 

a. Your Family

b. Your Friends

c.  Everyone 

# 2 “Love Mercy” 

GOD TELLS US WHAT TO LOVE - LOVE MERCY - OUR AFFECTION

Galatians 6:1,2

A.) Love Mercy toward your Wife, Children, and others.

# 3 “Walk Humbly” 

GOD TELLS US HOW TO WALK - WALK  HUMBLY WITH THY GOD - OUR ASSOCIATION 

Three Types of People Today:

1.) The Prideful who think they are humble.

2.) The Humble who are afraid they are prideful.

3.) The self-forgetful. 

When you are in the process of humbling yourself, the Lord will load you with blessings. God wants you to be like the stalk of wheat that is full of beautiful grains. The more it is loaded the lower it stoops down. Our real riches will be manifested by our humility. F.B. Meyer once said:  "I used to think that God's gifts were on shelves one above the other, and that the taller we grew in Christian character the easier we could reach them. I now find that God's gifts are on shelves one beneath the other. It is not a question of growing taller but of stooping lower; that we have to go down, always down, to get His best gifts." 

 

The response of a godly heart is outward (do justice), inward (love mercy), and upward (walk humbly).
