This site exists to provide insights from the Christian perspective through teaching theology and biblical exegesis. Does God exist? How reliable is the biblical text? How should the Christian faith be understood? These questions are not simply academic, but affect all groups of people. The Apostle Paul imparted this godly wisdom to us, "...that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another" (1 Corinthians 4:6).

A Lesson From The Book Of Micah
God's Words Exhorts Us To Obey His Commandments:
-"He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good: and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." (Micah 6:8)
Commentary on The Text Of Micah 6:8:
-From this text of Scripture, we learn that God anticipates authentic transformation of the human heart from a previous state of transgression. This is externally revealed through sound conduct and language. The people who truly love God will by His grace conform themselves to fit His divine will. Micah 6:8 instructs us to change ourselves inwardly, outwardly, and upwardly. "To do justly" means to treat our neighbors in a righteous manner. "To love mercy" presupposes personal devotion to the precepts of God which thereby offers vindication of our profession to know, love, and serve Him. The phrase "to walk humbly with thy God" necessarily denotes having the proper desire to serve Him. This passage from the Book of Micah indicates that our earthly walk is evidence of what is taking place in us spiritually. We must worship Him in truth.
