“We cannot begin a conversation about justice anywhere but at the cross of Jesus”
(We thank She Reads Truth for this Good Friday reminder).
What happened at the cross was the great inversion of justice. Jesus took the punishment that we deserved and in return we received a brand new life; we received hope; we received salvation; we had our slates wiped clean.
This is where our conversation about justice begins because this is where God shows us an example of His justice in the flesh. This is the standard that God sets for us. We have been given this miraculous gift by God’s grace… and that is only the beginning of the story.
We are all called to seek justice. Seeking justice begins with seeking the One who created justice.
