Fresh Start: Fresh Passion: Micah 6:1-8

About This Message

Now listen to what the Lord is saying: Rise, plead [your] case before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice.  Listen to the Lord’s lawsuit, you mountains and enduring foundations of the earth, because the Lord has a case against His people, and He will argue it against Israel.
Micah 6:1-2 (CSB)

1.  Spiritual Passion Starts With Extravagant Grace

My people, what have I done to you, or how have I wearied you? Testify against Me! 4 Indeed, I brought you up from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from that place of slavery. I sent Moses, Aaron, and Miriam ahead of you. 5 My people, remember what Balak king of Moab proposed, what Balaam son of Beor answered him, and [what happened] from Shittim to Gilgal, so that you may acknowledge the Lord’s righteous acts.
Micah 6:3-5 (CSB)

…that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them.
2 Corinthians 5:18 (NIV)

What should I bring before the Lord when I come to bow before God on high? Should I come before Him with burnt offerings, with year-old calves? Would the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousand streams of oil? Should I give my firstborn for my transgression, the child of my body for my own sin?
Micah 6:6-7 (CSB)

2.  Spiritual Passion Continues With Audacious Actions

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.  And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8 (NIV)

A.        Act Justly
