Grunge Series: Justice
JUSTICE is making things right. It’s having God’s eyes to see all the scattered pieces of the broken world, and God’s imagination to put everything back together again. Its end is shalom – or peaceful completeness. It’s doing whatever it takes to restore humans to the God who designed and longs for them. It sees excuses as exits along the highway, drawing us away from our purpose, convincing us that the comfort of a hotel room or the taste of a milkshake is worth more than world restoration. It’s storming the prison gates, stealing the keys, and releasing those who have been taken captive. Simply stated, it’s working with God to put the world back together again, restoring things to the way they are supposed to be. Justice is planting salvation, hope, freedom, and life into real people – its loving people the way God loves us.
