The Real Thing: Justice
Prepare to be challenged as Ian makes Justice personal. The Cross transforms us, and we are saved through faith and grace; now we have this new life, what will we do? Ian suggests that if we want a comfortable life, we can have one, and we will face an uncomfortable conversation with Jesus. When we mess up in bringing about justice, Jesus always says “have another go”.
Amos 5: 21-24
21 “I hate, I despise your religious festivals;
your assemblies are a stench to me.
22 Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings,
I will not accept them.
Though you bring choice fellowship offerings,
I will have no regard for them.
23 Away with the noise of your songs!
I will not listen to the music of your harps.
24 But let justice roll on like a river,
righteousness like a never-failing stream
