Scripture: Micah 4:1-5
The prophet Micah famously told us what the Lord requires of us–to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with God.
But before he told us what to do, he told us what God was going to do for us and through us. King Hezekiah called the prophet to the throne room to give a message from God while the Assyrian army was laying siege at the city gates. Facing inevitable doom, inexplicably, the prophet began to speak of peace.
A day is coming, he promised, when peoples of every nation will stream to Jerusalem, not to destroy it but to seek God’s wisdom. After that day, people will melt down their weapons and refashion them into garden tools, because no one will make war anymore.
The Empires of this world only know how to make peace through violence. But God’s peace will not come through violence. I hope you will join me as together we will receive Micah’s vision and learn the only path that leads to God’s peace.
