Pastors and teachers: How does your proclamation and instruction reflect this prophecy that Messiah Jesus “will proclaim justice to the nations” and “bring full justice with his final victory”?
Matthew 12:17-21 | This fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah concerning him: “Look at my Servant, whom I have chosen. He is my Beloved, and I am very pleased with him. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not fight or shout; he will not raise his voice in public. He will not crush those who are weak, or quench the smallest hope, until he brings full justice with his final victory. And his name will be the hope of all the world.” (NLT’96)
This holds profound implications for our understanding of redemption and salvation — and our practice of mission. Is ‘justice’ integrated into your preaching and teaching?
