“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.” —Psalm 89:14
Justice is centered in God’s heart and points to His coming Kingdom, where every wrong is made right and all of creation— long-devastated by sin—is made whole again. Jesus came as an agent of God’s justice, making a way for humans to be cleansed from sin and restored to relationship with God and others. As we experience wholeness through Christ, it is our joy and mandate to seek the same for others.
In Central Asia, Frontier Fellowship partners with a women’s shelter that is faithfully seeking justice for families:
“When Jayla arrived at the women’s shelter, pregnant with her third child, she shared her story and challenges with the staff. She’d never received her own birth certificate and was unable to prove she was a citizen of her nation. Because of this, she couldn’t legally marry the father of her child-to-be.
“The shelter staff worked for more than a year to help restore Jayla’s documents through a maze of bureaucracy that is sometimes hindered by corruption. We rejoice that she gave birth to a healthy daughter, is now officially married to the father, and is learning about Jesus at a local fellowship.”
The loving perseverance of the shelter’s staff helped transform the lives of Jayla and her family—from broken to mending, from without rights to legally recognized.
Read Isaiah 61. How is God inviting you to partner with Him in addressing injustice and seeking wholeness for all creation?
