Micah 6:8 “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Psalm 8:3-5 “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.”
The Scene: a pair of sandals representing the shoes of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth when He walked the earth.
John the Baptist thought himself too lowly, unworthy to untie Jesus’ sandals. Micah tells us in the Scripture above that we are worthy of honor, in the Lord’s eyes, when we learn to walk humbly before God. Jesus made it possible for His people, believers, to be higher than the angels, an honor undeserved but given freely. It is only through the love and mercy of Jesus toward us that we are allowed the freedom in worship to give Him praise, led by His Spirit.
1Corinthians 6:2-3 “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!”
Jesus has put much faith in His saints who are to rule and reign with Him on this earth and in heaven. Our task is to be prepared to rule and reign! Be ready, saints!
