Biblical Teaching 19

"What does the Lord require of you?" So asks one of the most famous passages in the entire Bible. The question is found in Micah 6:8. In no uncertain terms, Micah stated what the Lord required. Moreover, Micah indicated that the people who called themselves God's people had not met the Lord's requirements. Even in the midst of the people's evils and God's coming punishment, however, Micah extended a word of hope, one of the most memorable in the entire Bible. Godwould eventually bring peace. Too, God would provide a ruler unlike the faithless, greedy rulers Micah condemned. This ruler, Jesus the Christ, would be "the one of peace" (5:5). Your church will learn much from these four sessions on what our God requires of us.
