What does the Lord require?

RE Verse reading–Micah 6:1-8 (day one)  “He has showed you, O man, 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)  Sunday, we will recognize the High School graduating class of 2012.  It will be a celebration for 22 FBC Seniors and their families and their church family.  To qualify, these students must have taken and completed the required classes.  What does God require of us?  (Hebrew–darash, “to seek”)  For what does He search for evidence we have completed His course of study? When He looks over the transcript of our lives, for what does He look? Requirement is an unbending word. There is no gospel here–only Law.  Surely the God of the Universe is not less demanding than a school board.  He has told us what is required.  Now we must ask,  “how can I live a life that meets these demands?”
