Bless the Lord

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,

Worship His holy Name

Sing like never before, O my soul,

I'll worship Your holy Name

it's a new day dawning

It's time to sing Your song again

Whatever may pass,

and whatever lies before me

Let me be singing when

the evening comes

Sing like never before, O my soul,

I'll worship Your holy Name

Your Name is great,

For all Your goodness

I will keep on singing

Ten thousand reasons

for my heart to find

Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul,

Worship His holy Name

Sing like never before, O my soul,

when my strength is failing

The end draws near

and my time has come

Still my soul will

sing Your praise unending

Ten thousand years

and then forevermore

How He Loves

John Mark McMillan

VERSE 1

He is jealous for me,

Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,

Bending beneath the weight of

His wind and mercy.

When all of a sudden,

I am unaware of these afflictions

eclipsed by glory,

And I realize just how

beautiful You are,

And how great Your

affections are for me.

CHORUS 1

And oh, how He loves us oh,

Oh how He loves us,

How He loves us all

VERSE 2

He is jealous for me,

Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,

Bending beneath the weight of

His wind and mercy.

When all of a sudden,

I am unaware of these afflictions

eclipsed by glory,

And I realize just how

beautiful You are,

And how great Your

affections are for me.

CHORUS 2

And oh, how He loves us oh,

Oh how He loves us,

How He loves us all

VERSE 3

We are His portion and

He is our prize,

Drawn to redemption

by the grace in His eyes,

If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.

So Heaven meets earth like

an unforeseen kiss,

And my heart turns violently

inside of my chest,

I don’t have time to

maintain these regrets

When I think about, the way…

CHORUS 3

And oh, how He loves us oh,

Oh how He loves us,

How He loves us all

CHORUS 4

Yeah, He loves us,

Oh how He loves us,

Oh how He loves us,

Oh how He loves.

Yeah, He loves us,

Oh how He loves us,

Oh how He loves us,

Oh how He loves.






Sermon

Micah 6:8 Series #1 - Do Justice



John 14:21 NIV

21 Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me.




Matthew 22:37-40 NIV

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”




Micah 6:6-7 NIV

6 With what shall I come before the Lord

and bow down before the exalted God?

Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,

with calves a year old?

7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,

with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?

Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,

the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?





Micah 6:8 NIV

8 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.




Psalm 37:28 NLT

28 For the Lord loves justice

Psalm 36:6 NLT

6 Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,

Your justice like the ocean depths.

You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.

Isaiah 30:18 NIV

18 Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;

therefore He will rise up to show you compassion.

For the Lord is a God of justice.

Blessed are all who wait for Him!




Amos 5:21-24 NIV

21 “I hate, I despise your religious festivals;

your assemblies are a stench to Me.

22 Even though you bring Me burnt offerings and grain offerings,

I will not accept them.

Though you bring choice fellowship offerings,

I will have no regard for them.

23 Away with the noise of your songs!

I will not listen to the music of your harps.

24 But let justice roll on like a river,

righteousness like a never-failing stream!




If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has his foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

~ Archbishop Desmond Tutu





Micah 6:8 New American Standard Bible

He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?


Micah 6:8 Contemporary English Version

The LORD God has told us what is right and what He demands: "See that justice is done, let mercy be your first concern, and humbly obey your God."





Jeremiah 22:16 NIV

16 He defended the cause [lit. GAVE JUSTICE] of the poor and needy,

and so all went well.

Is that not what it means to know Me?”

declares the Lord.




The essence of justice is mercy
