Following Jesus, fulfilling His mission

On Earth as it is in heaven #3 Where does the problem lie

Where does the problem lie? Poverty and disadvantage are created and maintained by social, political and economic systems that favour the interest of the powerful over the weak. God called Israel as His covenant people toe be people of justice, with laws and guidelines that would allow them to be a light to the nations in how they treated others.

Seen this already in the nation of Israel Is 58; first century Israel with Roman domination and oppression from religious elite.

Part of the redemptive plan of God is for his church to build communities (church and society) that create support systems people need when they encounter crisis.

Micah 6:8 – 8 No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
