Courtroom for Christians

Micah 6:1-8
May 17, 2009

The Court (1-2)

The mountains represent the foundational history of sustained and enduring cultural positions & mentalities (4:1).  Through time the Lord’s peak becomes chief among these mountains (Phil.2:9-11).  It is here that Micah and all believers ‘plead their case’ for the glory of the Lord.  It is here where cultures are altered by revival of the soul. (Mt.17:20, The Seed: Lk.8:11 & 1Pet.1:23)


The Case (3-5) 

What have you got against God? (The Blame Game called DECEPTIVE CONFUSION, James 1:16-17)

  Deliverance (Romans 6:6, 16-18)

  Guidance (Luke 1:78-79, John 16:13)

  Protection (John 17:15, 2Thess. 3:3)

  Remembrance (1Cor 11:23-26)


The Verdict (6-8)

With the CLARITY of His positioning and provision we should be driven to please Him.  Yet the Lord specifies His desired requirements:

1.   Act Justly – fair and honest, sincere equality, ‘benefit of the doubt’ (Psalm 24:3-6)

2.   Love Mercy – Love others through God’s heart, grace over judgment, forgiveness/blame, patience/irritation, kindness/harshness, holiness/fleshliness (Mt.5:7 ‘pity in action’, 1Peter 3:8-12)

3.   Walk Humbly – pride buster, God pointer, palm protector (1Peter 5:5-7, Psalm 51:17)

4.   WITH GODhand in hand; same direction, destination, pace, purpose, & power
