Called: The Call To Act Justly // Week #3

January 22, 2023

When Jesus calls us to follow him, he calls us to live a life where we act justly. Justice is not revenge or platitudes but a real response of his love.

As a follower of Jesus:

  1. I’m called to live _____________.
  2. As a follower of Jesus, righteous behavior and the right treatment of others matters

The context for Isaiah 1:

“The Lord had entered into a covenant relationship with the people of Judah, but they had rebelled like spoiled children.” (Vines Expository Bible Notes)

Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. Isaiah 1:17

Righteousness and justice are always linked together.

When righteousness and justice are not linked:

  1. Justice becomes _____________ as _____________.
  2. Justice becomes _____________ as a _____________.

Today’s personal application:

  1. What is one area of injustice in this world that breaks your heart?
  2. What is one thing you can do right now to make a difference?
