Vaguely Particular from Joseph Taber on Vimeo.
6 ‘With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt-offerings, with calves a year old?
7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with tens of thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?’
8 He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Thanks be to God
1I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Thanks be to God.
Last week, we explored why we do what we do. We remembered together our family history, and how our gratitude move us into the future as we seek to follow Christ. Our discipleship is a grateful response in faith to what God has already done.
I may only have a vague picture of the particulars, but God has shown us, fellow mortals, what is good. And I, for one, am excited about where God’s vision is taking us.
