What Does God Expect Of Us THIS Week

What a week.
It has been a week that shouts of transgressions and tragedy. Social media, news outlets, and coffee conversations are filled with discussions of the boundaries of the law, the state of our society, and the many ways human decency seems to be challenged right now.
As a Christ-follower, it is important that we move forward in our words and deeds intentionally at times like this. It is important for us to identify what is good, and do what God asks of us rather than joining in the noise of opinions and frustrations.
In Romans 12:2 the Bible describes that we must be cautious. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Discerning the will of God for our lives, let alone our society and country can seem difficult. Fortunately, God provided a guideline in Micah 6:8:
He has told you, human one, what is good and what the Lord requires from you: to do justice, embrace faithful love, and walk humbly with your God.
In simple terms,
Don’t repeat the same talking points you have heard. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve heard them said, do not allow your mind to conform to the things the world offers as false wisdom.
Instead be humble! “Walk with God” into times of prayer and study in the Word to “renew your mind” and get guidance from God on what is “faithful love”.
Want to start now? Read Romans 12:14-18 and reflect on what the Bible is teaching about this week’s situations.
See you Sunday at 10 AM as we worship the living God! We believe this one hour each week can change every other hour of your life! Invite a friend, you may never know the difference it will make.
