Christian Attributes

God has shown all Christians,  "What is Good and What He requires of us ( Micah 6:8 ):

 

1.   To walk justly, act justly, be just, see that justice is done, and always be fair.

2.  To love people, diligently embrace and practice kindness with compassion.  To embrace faithful love, loving goodness, and always having mercy as your first concern.

3.  To walk humbly with God, humbly obeying Him.  Setting aside any overblown sense of self-importance or self-righteousness.  Walking in purity with your God, living humbly, in fellowship with God and others.  Living obediently before God, and walking lowly before Him.
