To ob­tain jus­tice in this world turn to Je­sus who died for all of us

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - THIS WEEK YOU’RE SAYING ... -

WHERE do pleas of jus­tice come from? Usu­ally from the peo­ple who have been treated un­fairly. It can be a child who is bul­lied, a group of peo­ple op­pressed or a busi­ness that has been cheated in its trans­ac­tions.

We need to turn our eyes to the hills for there is where our help comes from. The Je­sus who knows all things and un­der­stands the in­jus­tices of life per­fectly. He was be­trayed, re­jected, falsely ac­cused and con- demned to death on a cross. A death he en­dured for all of us, no mat­ter who we are or what­ever our sta­tion in life. As Chris­tians all over cel­e­brate Easter, let us ac­knowl­edge His sac­ri­fice. May we take the lessons of His life, death and res­ur­rec­tion into our lives and live it out by spread­ing the pos­i­tive mes­sage of hope and sal­va­tion.

I wish all metro ci­ti­zens a week­end of rest with re­newed strength for a fu­ture filled with joy, peace and love.

Ideas for this let­ter came from a prayer ti­tled A Way For Jus­tice in a book by Ellen Banks El­well: One minute de­vo­tions. Life is Beau­ti­ful.
