Our Daily Bread For Today 14th March 2022 Devotional, Monday Message Written By Mart DeHaan (Our Daily Bread Ministries)  || ODB  Daily Reading

TOPIC: Justice and Jesus

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Micah 6:1–8

6 Listen to what the Lord says:

“Stand up, plead my case before the mountains; let the hills hear what you have to say.

2 “Hear, you mountains, the Lord’s accusation;o listen, you everlasting foundations of the earth. For the Lord has a case against his people; he is lodging a charge against Israel.

3 “My people, what have I done to you? How have I burdened you  Answer me?

4 I brought you up out of Egyptt and redeemed you from the land of slavery.u I sent Moses to lead you,

also Aaron and Miriam.

5 My people, remember what Balak king of Moab plotted and what Balaam son of Beor answered. Remember your journey from Shittim to Gilgal, that you may know the righteous acts of the Lord.”

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?

8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justlyi and to love mercy and to walk humbly  with your God.

KEY VERSE: What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. – Micah 6:8

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Deuteronomy 23–25; Mark 14:1–26

TODAY’S INSIGHT Caesar Augustus (63 bc–ad 14), the first emperor of Rome, wanted to be known as a law-and-order ruler. Even though he built his empire on the back of slave labor, military conquest, and financial bribery, he restored a measure of legal due process and gave his citizens Iustitia, a goddess our justice system today refers to as Lady Justice. He also called for a census that brought Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem for the birth of a long-awaited ruler whose greatness would reach to the ends of the earth (Micah 5:2–4).

MESSAGE

What neither Augustus nor the rest of the world could have anticipated is how a far greater King would live and die to show what real justice looks like. Centuries earlier, in the prophet Micah’s day, the people of God had once again lapsed into a culture of lies, violence, and “ill-gotten treasures” (6:10–12). God’s dearly loved nation had lost sight of Him. He longed for them to show their world what it meant to do right by each other and walk humbly with Him (v. 8).

It took a Servant, King, to personify the kind of justice that hurting, forgotten, and helpless people long for. It took the fulfilment of Micah’s prophecy in Jesus to see the right relationships established between God and people, and person-to-person. This would come not in the outward enforcement of Caesar-like law-and-order, but in the freedom of the mercy, goodness, and spirit of our servant King Jesus.

REFLECT: What does it mean to you to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God? How do you see this lived out in the life of Jesus?

PRAY: Father, in the name of Jesus, please help me do right by others and everyone You bring into my life.
