“What Should I Do?”

This week’s Pastor to Person was written by Pastor Caleb Beller.
[Mic 6:8 NKJV] 8 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 was prophesying in a time of great political and spiritual turmoil. Apostasy, judgment, false prophets, it was a confusing time for God’s people. Yet in the midst of these dark days, there was hope in the coming Messiah.
In the middle of all the chaos, the godly were wondering where to start. Micah reminds them to start with what they already know.
Micah reminds us of three things God has called us to do. First, we are to do justly. God cares about justice. We represent his heart in our passion and pursuit of justice. His justice however is not defined by courts and governments but by the Word of God.
Second, we are to be lovers of mercy. We are not God’s police simply enforcing the law, but we are also paramedics; responding with His grace, seeking to heal, and restore the broken and hurting.
Lastly, Micah reminds us that all of this is rooted in our relationship with God. We should seek justice and administer mercy because we humbly walk with Jesus as a result of the Gospel.
As we get pulled in so many different directions this season, let us remember what is good; and what God has called us to do. To walk with Jesus. To allow the gospel to humble us, and to motivate us to be His hands and feet in this hurting and broken world.
