Devotion 12-20-23 Micah 4:2 -"Many nations will come and say, “Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord And to the house of the God of Jacob, That He may teach us about His ways And that we may walk in His paths...." Many say the Old Testament books are not relevant to them in this present day. As a result, they leave out all of the basis of understanding for the New Testament. The entirety of the Bible is God's Word. Micah, a prophet to those in Judah (the Southern Kingdom), contains several famous nuggets that were quoted by Jesus or by New Testament authors. He beckons us to come close to God, in God's house (church.) Micah encourages us to learn from God directly. "Come and let us go to the mountain of the LORD and to the house of the God of Jacob, that He (God) may teach us about His ways and that we may walk in His paths." We must approach, learn, and walk in God. Anyone who will call upon God, anyone who will turn to God, anyone who wishes to know God, will approach God, learn from God, and walk in God's ways. The primary source is God. The primary source is His word, the Bible, the whole word written to you. How will you understand the power of Jesus's proclamations if you do not see where the people had come from over 5000 years. If you do not understand the futility of attempting to walk through life without God, you will not appreciate the amazing gift, given to all, in Jesus's life, death, and resurrection. You must choose to turn away from the world's gods to the one true God. You must choose Him and His ways. Verse 5, "Though all the peoples walk each in the name of his god, as for us, we will walk In the name of the Lord our God forever and ever."
