Social justice may now be a ministry buzzword, but it's not a new concept. James 1:27 says that the kind of religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. Earlier Scripture says, The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern (Prov. 29:7). How is your church reflecting God's heart for justice?
This 24-page resource is designed to help you understand what the Bible says about God's heart for justice and what it looks like to live that out in your church.
