A Faithful Life Doesn't Have to Be Complicated

We've made following Jesus far too complex. If we don't watch ourselves, the Bible can turn into a to-do list: love others, forgive those who hurt you, be patient, give to the hurting, serve in your church, pray without ceasing, confess your sins, and on and on. But is checking things off a list really what Jesus intended when he said, "Follow me"?

More than two thousand years ago, the prophet Micah called upon Israel to return to its true calling: "Act justly, love mercy, walk humbly with your God." Could it be that this is the most practical way to follow Jesus? In this freeing book, pastor Rusty George shares how to let this verse simplify your understanding of what God asks of you. What does justice look like in this day and age? How are we to show mercy to others and ourselves? And perhaps most difficult in this selfie world, what does it mean to live a humble life?

A life of faith should not be a chore, so put away your checklists and learn how to walk simply with God.

"It's hard to think of three qualities that are more needed--by the church or in our country or in the world--than these three. May Rusty's book not only get widely read; may it get deeply realized."

John Ortberg, pastor, Menlo Church

"This is a quiet book, which are, of course, always the most dangerous. There is breathing room and freedom in its pages, much like in Micah 6:8, the verse the book is based on. The simplicity of justice, mercy, and humility follows verses that heap more work upon us to please God. . . . Thousands of rams, ten thousand rivers of oil, my firstborn child . . . what will please God? The response is the whisper of these three words, and Rusty invites us to linger and rest in them. Your soul probably needs this book . . . mine did."

Nancy Ortberg, CEO of Transforming the Bay with Christ

"One of the best parts of reading this book is knowing Rusty personally and watching him live this message out. Justice. Mercy. Humility. is a quick and necessary message that I need to hear over and over. If you aim to become more like Jesus, this book is worth the read."

Carey Nieuwhof, founding pastor, Connexus Church, Ontario, Canada
