Like most (all?) of the minor prophets, Micah warned God's people of the judgment to come, while offering pardon to all who repent. It was originally written for both the people of Israel (northern kingdom) and Judah (southern kingdom), but particularly the people of Judah.
Micah is very clear that God's judgment will come, and today's passage mainly focus on that portion of Micah's message. Once again we see how very serious our sin is to our holy God, and how serious we need to be about evicting it from our lives.
Our NT passage talks about the Messiah's return.
Today is Christmas Eve. During the Christmas season we celebrate Jesus' first coming to earth. And, indeed, Jesus' first coming is a day of rejoicing. For Jesus did not come to condemn the world, but to save the world. However, when Jesus returns it will be a day of judgment, and we need to be ready!
