Making the jump into missional discipleship

Multiply Justice posts:

Many Christians are discovering God’s heart for justice in the pages of Scripture and hearing his call to do justice for the very first time. Some are deeply moved — even angry — when they become aware of the awful oppressions imposed on the weak and vulnerable. They want to do something, to make a meaningful difference.

Unfortunately, the enormity of injustice in the world causes some to lapse into despair — what can one person do, after all? Others stop short of truly meaningful action by just giving money to an organization that drills water wells or BOGOing shoes to the poor. Only a few make the jump into the missional discipleship that gets personally involved, hands-on, with multiplying justice in community.

Here at Multiply Justice, we want more for you than anger or despair — or a consumerist self-deception that pretends buying something satisfies Almighty God’s cosmic passion for his people to bring abundant, eternal life to his oppressed children. That’s why we not only tell stories about justice, but also point you toward resources and trustworthy partners who can help you put boots on the ground in the fight for Kingdom justice.

An excellent new resource for organizing your justice campaign is now available from one of our trustworthy partners. International Justice Mission has published The Just Church: Becoming a Risk-Taking, Justice-Seeking, Disciple-Making Congregation, a road map to doing justice in a meaningful way that brings long-lasting transformation to individuals and communities. The Just Church will provide tangible, accessible strategies to help your church respond to God’s call to seek justice, defend the widow and orphan, and rescue the oppressed in far-off places and right in your own community.

You can learn more about The Just Church in our Resources section by clicking here. You also can download the first chapter for free by clicking here.

This Q&A will help you hear the heart of the book’s author, Jim Martin, who draws on 18 years of experience on the front lines of the fight for biblical justice to lead church mobilization efforts for IJM.
