What Delights the Lord?

September 23, 2023

Jeremiah 9:23-24
23 Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, 24 but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

Many people wonder… what does God want from me? A Google search of that question turns up 2,120,000,000 results. But we do not have to Google or wonder what God wants of us. Jeremiah 9:23-24 is God’s clear answer.

He desires kindness, justice, and righteousness of us. These traits are who God is; as God’s people, these traits should define our lives.

We do not have to fear God or His justice. God does not deal in pop quizzes, but He makes abundantly clear who He is and what He expects of His followers.
