Week 1

Justice and Judgment

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…”   These words, forever enshrined in the U.S. Declaration of Independence, speak of the fundamental human rights of all people; but even beyond the affirmations by human governments, we know that our God is a God of justice, and He affirms the basic dignity of all human beings. However, we need not look far to see that the waves of injustice have swept egregiously over our communities, our nation, and our world.   The word “righteousness” in the Scriptures is often used synonymously with the word “justice,” and the term is indicative of generosity, charity, or the restoration of proper balance. Every human being has rights that must be protected, and when we become the righteousness of God, we bring His justice to every imbalance in our world. Coming on the heels of the incredibly enlightening series entitled The Power of Good Judgment, Bishop Smith announces a clear call to action for all believers in Justice & Judgment. You were meant to bring God’s justice to the earth – to balance the scales, to advocate for the oppressed, to stand up for the needy – and this kinetic series will inspire you to rise up and be the change! When everyone’s rights are fulfilled, we will see heaven on earth. Activate the power of Justice & Judgment!
