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