“Church: What does the Lord require of us?” (Micah 6:1-8)  Sunday, June 24, 2018

Call to Worship   

 

L:         This is the day the Lord has made.

 

P:         Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

L:         I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.”  

 

P:         And now are feet are standing within your courtyards!

 

U:        From the soles of our feet to the crown of our head we offer total praise to God!

 

Scripture (Micah 6:1-8)                    

                                   

Our reading comes from  the prophet Micah. 

1Hear what the Lord says: Rise, plead your case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.

2Hear, you mountains, the controversy of the Lord, and you enduring foundations of the earth; for the Lord has a controversy with his people, and he will contend with Israel.

3“O my people, what have I done to you? In what have I wearied you? Answer me!

4For I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and redeemed you from the house of slavery; and I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.

 5O my people, remember now what King Balak of Moab devised, what Balaam son of Beor answered him, and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the saving acts of the Lord.”

6“With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?

7Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”

 8He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Here ends our reading. May God bless our understanding.
