Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?
This passage is directed towards God’s people. It is a passage that the Church must embrace during these times, if we are to be the pillar and support of truth that we are called to be.
God has told us what is good through His word to us. He even told us what is evil, yet many in the church are practicing or embracing that which is evil and calling it good.
When those in the church embrace a sexuality and lifestyle that God views as unacceptable and immoral, then justice and kindness are perverted and what is preached from the pulpits deceives the masses. Grace is cheapened. Grace and Love become conditional.
When those in the church embrace the innocent killing of children within the mother’s womb then justice and kindness become crooked and the church loses sight of God’s goodness.
When those in the church embrace a religion that turns its back on people of different races and views one race as superior to another, then justice and kindness become partial and hatred is sown within sanctuaries that become segregated instead of integrated with all of God's children.
When those in the church embrace their rights over their responsibilities in Christ, then justice and kindness is all about self and is not able to see the needs around.
Does the Church of Jesus Christ know what is good and what the LORD is requiring of us in this hour that we are living in? Have we become so enmeshed with our culture that we don’t know truth from error, love from hate, justice from injustice?
O, Father have mercy on us. Let Your Spirit, that we have quenched, move in power to convict our hearts concerning sin, righteousness and judgment. Give us hearts that are not proud but humble lest we fall and become the very thing that You hate. Give us hearts that recognize that Justice comes from You and not Academia and is known through Jesus and Him crucified. Give us hearts that receive and yield to Your Spirit that pours Your love into our hearts to Love You with everything and to love our neighbor as You love us. Jesus, You and You alone are Lord of lords! Give us eye salve for our eyes so that we see as You see. Help us and lead us in this time, in Jesus name, Amen!
