The Mountain of the Lord
Topic: AM Service Passage: Micah 4:1–5
Sometimes the prophets in Israel be hard to hear because their message is often one of rebuke and judgment. But we should never forget that the Lord sends warnings through the prophets because of His love for His people. In chapter 4, Micah reveals a stunning image of the grace of God – the mountain of the Lord rising above all else with a stream of people flowing into it. This is a picture of God’s work through the Lord Jesus Christ, as many people from far away nations hear the Word of God and experience His blessing. Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? If you do, then you are headed for a blessing at “The Mountain of the Lord” (Micah 4:1-5).

Questions for consideration: (1) Why do you think Micah abruptly shows a change in the view of Zion from 3:12 to 4:1? When have you seen your circumstances change abruptly for the better?
(2) How can people take verse 3 out of context? What are they missing if they do that? (3) What does it mean for you to “walk in the name of the Lord your God”?
