Promoting justice in our world is a beautiful endeavor—though it’s certainly not always easy. The book in your hands is a starting point for exploring the nature of justice, from the simplest act of kindness to overthrowing great evil. Learn from Micah and Isaiah the importance of upholding justice and the humility with which God’s people must wield it. Study Matthew and James to see how to promote justice, looking to God for guidance, grace, and mercy. Along the way you’ll be inspired by the voices of great justice-promoters like Elie Wiesel, Martin Luther King, Jr., Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Nelson Mandela.
Just as we’re expected to pursue justice, the Lord also commands us to submit to him and to one another. The second study in this book explores the true meaning and beauty behind the spiritual practice of submission. Through the compelling stories of Joseph in Egypt and Mary in Nazareth, and through the teachings of Paul and John, explore how following in the footsteps of Jesus requires an intentional laying aside of our control—and a willingness to abdicate our will to that of the Father.
The purpose of this study guide series is to help you use spiritual practices to make your own life richer, fuller, and deeper.
