Strong Words Require Strong Love – Herb Codington

2020-11-29 Main Sermon
Acts 2:9 & 10, Micah 1:1, Micah 5:1-5
The Christian church was a global church the day it was born. Israel strategically located.
The word of the Lord – God’s speech to us.
Role of a prophet – prophesying about Christ’s kingly role. Micah is speaking for the True and Living God.
You have forgotten who you are and to whom you belong.
Strong words require strong love.
Micah 6:8 – calling the people to repentance but also giving message of hope
Micah 4:4
A baby will be born in Bethlehem. He will not be raised in the seat of power.
The messiah that Hosea prophesizes about is a shepherd-ruler – Jesus models humility – King of Glory empties Himself and rules in humility.
The good shepherd makes sure we are at peace – act justly and love mercy
Application :
Know God – The Lord of all the earth; a covenant-making and covenant-keeping God
Know our role as prophets – we are a prophetic community – point through word and did to the Prince of Peace.
Life is more powerful than death.
