Justice. It’s a word we hear a lot these days. Though usually prefaced by a word like “social” first - “social justice.”
Webster’s defines justice as “the maintenance or administration of what is just especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments.” Of course, all of that implies there is some standard against which we can judge what is just and what is not. And every society builds its laws around its own understanding of right and wrong. Sometimes that understanding in informed by God’s Word, and sometimes not.
Not surprisingly then, God’s Word has a lot to say about justice - especially from God’s point of view. And out of our 3 readings today, John 4:46-5:17; 1 John 5:1-5 - it is Ezekiel 16-19 where justice gets some pretty interesting treatment.
I’m Reid Ferguson, and we’ll explore justice just a bit today on Through the Word in 2020.
