The last two weeks we have looked at the first parts of Micha 6:8b; how to do what is right and to love mercy. This Old Testament Scripture sums up well how we’re supposed to live as disciples of Christ. Again, the verse reads: “…this is what He requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”
This week we’re going to take a look into what it means “walk humbly with your God.”
We have the perfect example in Jesus as someone Who walked humbly. Mark 10:45 says that “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.”
According to Webster’s Dictionary, humble, means “having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance.” So, to be humble, we must be rid of self. And we have the perfect example in Jesus. He walked humbly every where He went, always looking for a way He could help others.
So, what are somethings we need to do to put our walk in ordrer?
First, we should ask the Lord for a humble heart.
Next, we need to humble our minds. Romans 12:3 says: “Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by faith God has given us.”
Jesus told His disciples in Mark chapter 9, that they must take last place and be the servant. That’s hard to do if you think so much of yourself. Remember your place. It is God Who created you. It is God Who saved you. And, it is God Who called you to your purpose – to be like Jesus – to be servant.
And for the final step, we need to get serving. We are to humble our hands. James 3:13 says: “If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.”
Walking humbly with God is the basis for loving mercy and doing what is right.
To walk with the Lord means to go along side Him, to have relationship with Him. Cultivating our relationship with God gives us the power and passion to live a life with an abundance of good and an abundance of love. Our relationship with God is the foothold of our servanthood.
