Discovering Justice: The Beginning of Justice (Isaiah 59)
These questions are meant to challenge you in each of our Four Commitments: PRAY, SPEAK, GROW, LOVE. Use these questions to further explore the message.
Pray: Where have you seen broken people experiencing injustices because of their own sin? Where have you seen a broken society and broken cultural systems breaking people? Pray and ask the Lord to have the same compassion that he has for them, to see them with his eyes.
Speak: How have you not used your tongue to speak out against injustices around you? What does it look like to do this in a loving way, knowing that when you speak out against sin you will always make people upset?
Grow: What do you think of when you hear the word "confession?" Does it leave a bad taste in your mouth? Why so? What area of your life do you need to confess your either contribution by commission or omission towards injustice?
Love: Broken people definitely have responsibility for at least a portion of the hell on earth that exists around them. How do you love them as Jesus loves them?
