What Does the Lord Require?

Dear Saints and Sinners,

What does the Lord require of you? Have you ever wondered about that? My youngest son graduated from high school last night. I can remember when the high school experience started for each of my three children. One of the things they tell incoming freshmen is “here are the minimal requirements for graduation.”

Knowing what is minimally required of you seems to be a valuable thing.

Micah 6:8 tell us what God requires of us.

 “….the Lord has told us what is good. What God requires of us is this: to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with God (TEV).

Interesting that the text does not talk about “belief.”

The text tells us that we are to “do” to "act."  And if you think about what our God has done for us from our creation to our redemption , there is no minimal standard set by God.  Our Lord has gone all out! Micah 6:8 calls upon the people of God to “do” and “act” in ways that surpass all minimal standards which leads to a transformation centered in God.

In worship this week we will hear from Lois Autterson and Amanda Jensen. They will tell us about the all out full force of ministry they experienced in Haiti a few weeks ago. Click here to see some pictures from their mission trip to Haiti.

Do you desire a closer walk each day with your Lord? Micah 6:8 is a good atlas. The witness of Lois and Amanda will invite you to one possibility of a path with your living Lord.

See you on Sunday.

Still in one peace,

David J. Jensen
