Biblical Justice Day II

Justice and Freedom

Contrary to how some people feel, the aim of Biblical justice is freedom. Freedom can be defined as a release from illegitimate bondage in order to make the choice to exercise responsibility in actualizing and maximizing all that you were created to be. Biblical justice encourages freedom through affirming accountability, equality and responsibility by linking the spiritual to the social realm. That is, freedom and biblical justice must be founded upon spiritual truth from our vertical relationship with God and expressed in our horizontal relationship with each other. In other words, biblical justice is all about loving God and loving others. 

Jesus links our attitude towards God (the spiritual) with our attitude towards others (the social). Love is not merely a feeling, but rather, an action. Love is compassionately and righteously pursuing the well-being of another. So since loving others is all about pursuing their best interest, then we should seek to free any person from oppression and inequity. We see this in Jesus’ earthly ministry. He preached the kingdom (the spiritual), but He also addressed people’s physical needs (the social).

As we fight for biblical justice and freedom, we need a balanced approach. We must confront sin and spread the gospel. But equally important, we must also stand against injustices, whether they be racial, socio-economical, political or criminal. If the gospel has changed your life, then praise God. If you are doing well and God has blessed you, then praise God. But understand, God doesn’t grant us freedom solely for ourselves. He wants to use us to help others gain their freedom. This is where biblical justice comes into play, and this is why God tells us to fight for the weak, speak up for those without a voice, and defend the rights of the oppressed and marginalized.

How is your love for God and love for others connected?  My love for God is greater than I’ve felt before today. I share what I understand when I don’t have anxiety. I share my story and testimonies as often as I can when I am in the right frame of mine online in blogs and diaries I have online. It is my way to spread the Word of God without cramming it down throats of others. I can’t go to other countries to Spread God’s word, so I go online from home or wherever the internet is available to me and go from there. Today is one of those days where I am home after dialysis treatment.

Bible verses; Ps. 82:3, 4 — Defend the weak and fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver then from the hand of the wicked. — A favorite verse of mine.

Matthew 27:37-40 and Luke 4:18-20

I’ve been dealing with some anxiety and stress because of what is happening in the world today. It — stress — has come about because I want to be one of those people who can change the world by myself. I can’t change the world. I am only one human being who struggles with anxiety, panic, and occasional depression. With that said, I have to say that I know I can’t change the world. I can change the way the way I react to situations that are in my life around me. We, as the human kind God made us, we are dealing with a lot of judicial rights and wrongs. We know what is right and wrong. We follow the world or we don’t. We don’t want to follow the world. We need to follow Jesus. Jesus has follow his Heavenly Father from start to finish. He was crucified because people didn’t want to hear the Word of God or believe he was the Messiah. Sad. Jesus died for them, me, you, and now we are believers in God or not.

Verse of the Day

 Isaiah 25:8 KJV
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

Scripture of the Day

Romans 5:6-8
New King James Version

Christ in Our Place ] For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

GOOD EYESIGHT

Average reading time is about 3 and a half minutes

An Amazing Fact: Contrary to popular belief, bats are not blind. In fact, many bats have exceptionally good eyesight designed for low levels of light.

Bats are nocturnal creatures and can be found all over the world, from Canada to warm tropical climates. To get around in the dark, many bats rely on a sophisticated form of sonar known as echolocation. With this detection method, bats emit short pulses of high-frequency sounds that are usually well above the threshold of human hearing. The sound waves spread out in front of the bat, striking any objects in its flight path and bouncing back in the form of an echo. By using this God-given radar, bats are able to discern the direction, distance, speed, and in some instances, the size and density of the objects around them. 

Jesus surprised His disciples when they discovered the Lord’s ability to see things beyond what they could see. Philip invited Nathanael to meet Jesus. Though skeptical, he went and met Christ, who said, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!” (John 1:47). Nathaniel asked, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered, “Before Philip called you when you were under the fig tree, I saw you” (v. 48). 

God is not blind. He does not lose track of us. Jesus still sees us in the secret places of our lives. Even in the darkest night, when we cry out to our heavenly Father, the Lord sees us … even in the dark.
