God Wants To Walk With You

Adrian Rogers

I love Micah 6:8.  It is one of the greatest verses in all of the Old Testament.  It says, “He hath shown thee, O man, what is good and what doth the Lord require of thee.” 

Number one, what is good?  Number two, what does God want? Do you want to know and hear what is good? The rest of the verse tells you:

 “He hath shown thee, O man, what is good and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God.”  God says, “Show mercy to people, do right yourself and just walk with Me.”

If you ask people, “What does God want?” some might say, “Well, God wants us to serve Him.”  Friend, if all God wanted was service, He could just use the angels.  They would do a better job than we—always innocently obeying, always on the job, full of power.  God doesn’t want mere service, even though we should serve Him, but that is not why He created us.

Some might answer, “Well, God wants scholars.  God wants us to learn all the facts about Him.”  No.  He wants you to study, but what is the bottom line?  God wants to walk with you.  Why did He create you?  He created you in His image so He could have fellowship with you. You are created for fellowship with Him.
