Come Before The LORD

Bible Text: Micah 6:1–8 |

In the first of our two Christmas messages last week, we heard from Micah 5:1-5a that when we’re vulnerable and facing crushing circumstances, help appears in an unexpected place, in an unlikely Saviour who delivers an unshakeable peace. God blessed that message with some great conversations afterward and one woman who gave her life to Christ at the front. She ditched the counterfeit Saviours we talked about and received the peace of Jesus! That’s the best Christmas gift anyone could get!

This Sunday, we’ll be looking at Micah 6:1-8 which depicts a courtroom and a case being heard against the people of God. The Lord himself is bringing the charge. And while he soundly condemns the people for their rebellious ways, he also tells them exactly what they need to do (and not do) to make it right. The message strikes a chord for us at Christmas when the people ask, “With what shall I come before the LORD?” How can we make this right? That’s a question many wonder about.

What’s it going to take for me to get right with God?

• He has charged me with an offence (v. 1–3)

• I’m guilty! The facts are irrefutable (v. 4–5)

• The sentence carries a penalty I cannot pay (v. 6–7)

• But I can be cleared of all charges (v. 8)
