Responding to Injustice
November 13, 2016

“In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.” — Hebrews 2:10

 

Do you suffer under the tyranny of injustice today? The greatest act of injustice ever committed was the nailing of a perfect man to a wooden cross, naked — where He died.  We all suffer injustice at some point; some of us more than others. But none of us can claim to be perfect. So if God sent His Son, who was perfect in everything, to fulfil his assignment through suffering, don’t you think God is able to use the suffering of injustice in your life to mould you for the perfect completion of your assignment? In other words, if Jesus, the only perfect man who ever lived, could only complete His life’s assignment through the process of suffering, don’t you think that you will have to suffer injustice in order to complete your assignment? 

 

Do you even know that you are here on assignment from the Father? You came from His heart! 

 

So the questions remains then, how do we respond rightly to injustice when it crosses our path so that we can complete our assignment? It is easy to respond with a victim-mentality. But Jesus didn’t. It is easy to finger-point, blame, and get bitter or unrighteously angry. It is easy to spiral into depression and hopelessness. You can even become hardened and cold. But that’s not what Jesus did. 

 

Right up until His dying breath Jesus offered forgiveness to his oppressors. His heart stayed full of love and kindness. He didn’t get offended. And so, He fulfilled the greatest assignment that ever was. He restored the opportunity for humankind to come back into alliance and relationship with God. Will you pay the same price to fulfil your assignment? Will you keep your heart tender and loving? Will you learn to forgive quickly? Will you get help from the Father when this is difficult? The reality is that responding well to injustice is only possible through God’s empowerment. So ask God for help. He is near. He is right there with you. God says to you, “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).
