|Do Justly, |
|Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt-offerings, with calves of a year old? Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my first-born for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He hath shown thee, O man, what is good; and what the LORD doth require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?||(Micah 6:6-8)|
In order to come before The Lord after we have sinned, our heart and soul must be made suitable to Our Father through prayer, asking Him to pardon us of our iniquities. We are able to be forgiven by the shedding of blood: first through animal sacrifice and later the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. But from the beginning Our Father didn't want sacrifice; instead He desired love and respect from us. To learn about Our Father and how to walk in His ways, we must faithfully read His Word, The Bible. And when we do, we shall discover what God requires of us; then our heart will change and He will provide us with the strength, courage and endurance to do justly, love mercy and walk humbly.
