What Does God Require Of Me?

With what shall I come before the Lord? 

Isaac of Nineveh (Note 1) suggests an answer: “Do not reduce your prayers to words, but rather make the totality of your life a prayer to God.”

Make the entirety of your life a prayer of worship to God. What does that look like? For that we have the Word of God as found in Micah 6:6-8:

What shall I bring to the Lord, the God of heaven, when I come to worship him? Shall I bring the best calves to burn as offerings to him? Will the Lord be pleased if I bring him thousands of sheep or endless streams of olive oil? Shall I offer him my first-born child to pay for my sins? No, the Lord has told us what is good. What he requires of us is this: do what is right to other people, show constant love, and walk in humble fellowship with our God. Micah 6:6-8

Lest you think this is a cake-walk, that your life already checks all three boxes, stay tuned.
