There is a great difference in excellency, usefulness, and comfort between people of clear, digested knowledge, and confused, undigested apprehensions. -Richard Baxter

let justice roll down like water…

The Gospel is the announcement that God is both just and the justifier of those who have faith in Jesus (Rom 3:26).  God is the One who acts justly toward sin by meting out justice upon the Savior, and on behalf of those God simultaneously justifies–acquits of sin and restores one to favor–in satisfying His commitment to justice.

As you may have heard Gary Haugen, President of International Justice Mission (ijm.org), will be preaching justice to us this weekend.  You might prepare your heart and mind for what he has to say by having a look here at an essay outlining some significant and practical steps to doing the work of justice among those in some form of sex-trafficking–not only in distant places, but right here. . . along the mean streets of Dallas.

If justice features so heavily in the most important moment of history, riding the ripple of justice and, with the Spirit’s help, channeling it toward areas needing it most seems like work worth doing.
