God is raising up justice heroes on the earth– men, women and children who will carry His heart or justice into every area of society, praying for justice and doing justice. Heroes carry the mission forward and accomplish it. They are bold, courageous. Heroes step on fear and move past it. They live in hope—in confident expectation in the goodness of God. Sharon’s book, Justice Wrapped in Mercy.
As we look at Jesus, we behold true justice and judgment, as He is the One who came into the world for justice (“For judgment I came into this world, so that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind,” John 9:39). Justice in the hands of a righteous judge brings life and revelation of God into the hearts of people. Justice invites the walking dead into the born-again life, making them new and right before God.
The God of Compassion, the God of Mercy, is the God of Justice and Judgment. He functions by the law of love, as a Holy God. Jesus summed up the law in two commandments: Love. “You shall love the Lord your God will all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind… You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39).
It is time to put on our robes of justice and uphold the law of love, with passionate mercy, motivated by the merciful loving God. Enter your prayer closet, and there you will find your robe waiting for you. You can make declarations in the earth to bring forth His justice, His love, His righteousness. “Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy” (Psalm 82:3).
