What does the Lord require of us?

Micah 6:8
In Micah 6:8, the question is asked, “What does the Lord require of us?”

As well as Micah’s answer, there is a New Testament answer to this question.
 * “Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sin” (Hebrews 9:22).
God calls us to come to the Cross. That’s where the life of faith and obedience begins.
 * “Without faith, it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6).
God calls us to put our faith in Christ. It’s personal faith. Each one of us must come to Jesus – “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine.” Faith is God’s gift. Each one of us must receive His gift.
 * “Without holiness, no-one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).
God is calling us to become more like Jesus. Our life is to be less of self and more of Christ – and we’re to give all the glory to God.
Micah 6:8 gives us an Old Testament answer to the question, “What is holiness?”
