Justice, Mercy and Faith
The gospel is challenging and comforting; encouraging and convicting. As a pastor and a religious leader, I must not neglect the weightier matters of the gospel; justice mercy and faith. To pursue preferences, individualistic and privatized salvation and “feel good” pabulum will be judged. In fact, God will destroy the sinful kingdom on earth; unrepentant sinners and apostate fellowships will be destroyed. The psalmist reminds me that nothing happens without God’s hand on it; creation; the order of things; personal circumstances; the number of my days; war and peace. Nothing happens without God’s involvement. I have concluded that to be faithful to Jesus, who is justice, mercy and faith, until death is my calling. As long as I am the hands and feet of Jesus with a servant’s heart all will be well regardless how painful it may become. Loving God and others; that is the heart of the gospel; that is how people will see and experience justice, mercy and faith. Thank you Jesus.
