Justice, Mercy, and Humility

 

Last week, we had Rob Penner to share a message with us from Isaiah 42. He touched on various examples of injustice happening around the world. There was the annexation of Crimea by Russia, where elections were hurriedly conducted under heavy Russian military presence. There was the recent mass stabbing in Kunming, by people who felt victimized and in turn victimize others. There was also the case of Chinese girls forced into prostitution under the pretext of a decent paying job. These and several others were then contrasted to Rob’s own experience of being slighted at a Pharmacy store in Hong Kong. The point is, when we contrast the real issues of injustice around the world with the mundane matters of inconvenience, our perspective of what is real justice or injustice will dramatically change. For political detainees, Christians arrested without proper trial, or employees bullied into submission, injustice is a common occurrence. Injustice happens when power has been abused and when the weak has been bullied by the strong. What can we do? The reminder from the prophet Micah applies to all.


“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.  And what does the Lord require of you?

To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)

The Most Important Question Ever Asked

THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION EVER ASKED (Mark 8:27-38)

WhoIsJesus.jpg

We have arrived at the midway point of Mark’s Gospel and Mark puts the whole theme of discipleship on a fulcrum.  Everything is hanging on the balance as Jesus asked the most provocative question ever asked of humanity, Who do you say that I am?How you answer this question will dramatically change your life.

Religiously Right But Hopelessly Wrong?

Religiously Right But Hopelessly Wrong?

Last Sunday, Pastor John helped us to contrast the “tradition of elders” and the Washing Hands
“commands of God.” The Pharisees questioned Jesus rudely after noticing his disciples not washing their hands before eating. As far as the religious leaders are concerned, the disciples had failed to follow the rules on ceremonial washing before eating. Jesus subsequently accused them of attaching human conditions to a divine instruction, by quoting the prophet Isaiah:


These people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far away from Me.” (Mark 7:6b)

 

As distant readers in the year 2014, it is easy for us to point a finger at the Pharisees by saying that they are legalistic and stubborn in their traditional ways. It is easy to simply study the Bible and feel good about us not behaving like the Pharisees. It is easy to shrug off the words by saying, “That’s not me!” or “I will never behave like them!”
