Emnity and Peace: The Good News of Christmas
Micah charges the leaders of Israel of hating good and loving evil. He calls out their rebellion and sin while warning of coming Judgment. In essence they oppose God and have enmity in their hearts.. They don’t see their sin and need for reconciliation which brings peace with God. They need Christmas just like we do because sin is destructive, deceptive and leads to judgment. Christmas is the good news of peace. God in the flesh. Peace on earth mercy mild God and sinner reconciled.
