Embodying Justice | Nov. 27, 2016

Getting Started

  • In Isaiah 42:1-9 we talked about the Servant bringing justice to the Nations. How does our culture define Justice? In what ways are people seeking justice?

Sermon Recap

 

Community Discussion

  • Jesus is the embodiment of God's justice to the nations and He brings justice through His people. As His people, How are we embodying God's justice to the people around us? In what ways has our community embodied compassion for the injustices going on around us?
     
  • In what ways has our community embodied sacrifice and service? How are growing together in boldness as well as tenderness? What are we doing to serve in a real tangible way the things that we have chosen to be audible about?
     
  • What is one social justice "cause" that we could collectively involve ourselves in, engaging it with the Gospel? What would it take for us to meaningfully get involved in this "cause"?
