The Image of Justice

Slide2

Three questions

What does God’s character reveal about

justice

?

What then does justice look like in

action

?

What is to be our

posture

as we live out lives that display

Godly Justice?

Slide3

Godly Justice

“Godly Justice is the pursuit of a

lifestyle

of grace, which actively seeks out those in our communities who are the

weak

, the

poor

, the

powerless

, the

oppressed

… in order to break down barriers of

disadvantage

,

segregation

,

abuse

,

manipulation

, and

oppression

.

This also is a

simultaneous call

for those who are the

strong

, the

rich

, the

powerful

, and the

unconstrained

… to use the grace they have received to make Godly Justice a reality. It is also a call to hold those accountable who have abused such priviledge and power.

All

of this

must take place in the reality of the

Gospel

!

LUKE 19:1

 

He entered Jericho and was passing through.

And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich.

And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature.

So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way.

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.”

So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully.

And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.”

And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.”

And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham.

10 

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

man

named Zacchaeus. He was a

tax collector

and was

rich

. 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was

small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “

Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today

Justice is

Justice is actually not a thought, an idea, an action

… as so much as it is a Person; namely, the Person of Jesus Christ the Lord.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is

Now

the

Lord

is

the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is

freedom

 

And

we all, with unveiled face,

[as we are] beholding

the glory of the Lord,

[we] are

being transformed into the

same

image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
