From Luke 4:14-22. This week we will return to our theme passage and consider how the good news is about justice. In the words of the prophet Amos, “Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.”
The story of Naboth’s vineyard in 1 Kings 21 reminds us that God desires justice and stands ready to punish those who deny or pervert justice. As we think about this narrative, it both convicts and brings comfort to God’s people.
The story of David, Nabal, and Abigail. The courage and desire for justice that served David so well against Goliath almost leads to a great sin, if not for Abigail’s humble intervention with the truth.
