Love-Driven Justice

In the same way that love and hate aren’t simply emotions – they’re also actions – justice is more than just an idea. It’s a way of living; a choice to see people the way God sees them: imperfect, vulnerable, and deeply loved by their creator.

When Jesus said, “The poor you will always have with you,” (Matthew 26:11) he wasn’t suggesting that his followers should just resign themselves to the world as it is. Jesus was reminding every person who chooses to follow him that the work of justice (God’s will) is constant and always with us.

As you seek to discover what God’s will looks like in your life, here are some great ways to “do justly” (Micah 6:8):

Taking on the
Mantle of Justice

Remembering the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Free Methodist Church leaders Rev. E. Kenneth Martin and Rev. Dr. Fraser Venter met together to discuss the “Mantle of Justice” – the idea that when we follow Christ, he covers us with his love for all people. They look at the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and how his commitment to loving both the body and soul impacts their own work today in the field of Love-Driven Justice.
