Prophet Isaiah sums up Jesus’ work when he says, “He is the servant chosen for the course of Justice.” (Isaiah 42:1-4)
Jesus has come to tell the world the real meaning of Justice. That is truth in action! He publicly demonstrates this even to his adversaries. According to Martin Luther King Jr., “the whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nations until the bright day of justice emerges.”
Ours is a society where justice has been dethroned and injustice enthroned. It is an indubitable truth that the tree of justice and peace can only grow when and where the trees of tyranny are poisoned by the blood of men of sacrifice like our heroes of faith. Never say what can I do? Since I can’t beat them, I must join them. Do you remember the woe that lies in bed for those planning mischief? Wash your heart and hands of those terrible deeds of yours. Naked we came to the world and naked we shall return (Job 1:21)
Ponder on the reality that confronts every living creature. Justice without compromise is a watch-word. Do not manipulate anybody to enrich yourself. The Lord will always fight for the course of justice of the oppressed and the lowly. Join in this holy battle against injustice that is taking over our days.
Nothing can limit you if you are determined to act justly.
