Messiah, Son of David

Come, let us worship (Ps 95)

"All the prosperous of the earth
Shall eat and worship;
All those who go down to the dust
Shall bow before Him,
Even he who cannot keep himself alive." Psalm 22:29

"I have sworn by Myself;
The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness,
And shall not return,
That to Me every knee shall bow,
Every tongue shall take an oath." Isaiah 45:23

"...at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:10-11
holy walk, sandals

What does He require?

"With what shall I come before the Lord,
And bow myself before the High God?

"Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
   With calves a year old?
      Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
         Ten thousand rivers of oil?
            Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
               The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

"He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?" Micah 6:6-8

I want to better grasp justice, better appreciate mercy, and walk more joyfully with my God.
