Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/19/18

This week’s scripture is from Micah:

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you / But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God…”    (Micah 6:8)

How hard we try to please God. We often strive to please God, to be good servants. If we love God we try to be good disciples; we try to keep ourselves busy with “the Lord’s work.” We want to feel worthy of His love for the great sacrifice He made for us; we want to win souls for the kingdom, and to spread the Word and love of God into our world. Yet what is it that the Lord requires of us? What does He say is good?  Busyness? Accomplishments? Certainly He has work for His faithful, but what He wants from each of us is what is on God’s own heart. He wants what is right, but most of all He wants us to — walk with Him.

May our merciful God bless you to do as He wants us to do.
