  1. There’s this online-radio guy named Rick Wiles to whom I listen – against my will I have to admit – this guy has said a few times that God did not choose him because of anything good about him, it’s because he’s a good “repenter”. And even though I wish he would repent and stop talking about his “news” ministry and his financial needs for most of his “news” show – I guess it’s up to God to let him know if some repenting is needed. God will impress in Rick’s heart to stop annoying me with all the fundraising – if that’s what’s right. Anyway, back to my point about this verse in Micah – he was prophesying about a day in the future when GOD would trample our sins. When we seek God for salvation, for righteousness, for help… that’s when HE changes us supernaturally, saves us supernaturally. Our job is to repent. Our part of this relationship is to repent. And we all know, hopefully, that to repent is not just saying the words – you can’t lie to God; it has to come from the heart, it has to be true. And that brings me to the other thing I get from this verse and about which I will write… God is our friend.

  2. I was told today that they didn’t see the connection that I was making between this verse and being a good “repenter”. So, I was trying to make the point that our part in this relationship with Jesus is repenting, He gets rid of the sin. That’s the most and best we can do, and I think that’s what Jesus wants from us as His friends. When we are a child of God, the relationship with Him can go in a few directions. We can be bad repenters, which will bring discipline from him. Or we can be good repenters, which will bring friendship from Him. It’s just a theory… what do you think?

    1. Hebrews 3:6 says”But Christ as a son over His own house, whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

      We are either in His house or we are not. God’s friend or enemy?

      Revelation 3:16 says “So then because you are lukewarm,and neither cold or hot. I will vomit you out of my mouth”

      Remember Jesus called Judas His friend, Jesus knew Judas’s heart. Jesus was friendly to Judas but on Judas’s side he was a betrayer his enemy. Jesus wanted the relationship but Judas wanted money.

      1. Today we have a funeral to go to, and it gets me thinking about how JUST God is. And we can trust Him with every soul. And how this offer of salvation is for EVERYONE who wants it. Thank you, Stephanie. I totally agree with you 🙂
