“To Act Justly”

Rev. Paul J. Miller – Sermon Outline – November 11, 2018

Series Title: “This is What God Requires”

Today’s Title: “To Act Justly”

Today’s Text: Micah 6:8 & Luke 4:14-21

 

The Power of Three: Justice – Mercy – Humility

Jesus Modeled Justice from the start (Luke 4:14-21)

To proclaim good news to the poor

To proclaim freedom for the prisoners

To recover sight for the blind

To set the oppressed free

To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor

“poor”, “prisoners”, “blind”, & “oppressed” occur 106x in the Gospels

 

What are your Priorities? How do your ACTIONS help…

the poor (all those who lack what they need the most)

the prisoners (imprisoned addictions, slaves to sin)

the blind (blind to truth, living in darkness)

the oppressed (politically, economically, socially)

 

Acting justly,(doing the work of justice), requires confrontation of the oppressor.

Just never forget that every oppressor is eligible for MERCY
