Live Justly is an in-depth scriptural and practical study
to help people live justly in 6 key areas of life:
advocacy, prayer, consumption, generosity, creation care and relationships.
Live Justly was written on these core principles:
Justice is often invoked by passionate teachers, pastors, and leaders inviting us into NEW action. For example, a justice-themed sermon from a leader or pastor to encourage the church to volunteer, go on a missions trip, or give to a cause. Justice is often focused upon doing something new, but what about the actions you and I take every day?
Here’s the thing: justice isn’t always about doing something new; it’s about infusing what we already do with Kingdom values. We wake up every day and make about fifty decisions–we decide what clothes to wear, what food to eat, how to commute to work or school, how to treat our friends, family, and strangers, what to pray for, where to invest our money, and so on. Justice isn’t simply an action once a year; it is a lifestyle. Our prayer is that our everyday actions will be infused with justice–not our definition of justice but God’s revelation of justice in Scripture.
The scriptures and the movement of the Holy Spirit have deeply touched our own lives here at Tearfund, and the call to seek justice has permeated our everyday life choices–pushing us not just to seek justice but to live justly. Perhaps you too feel that call to seek justice.You are not alone in this experience–countless churches, campus groups, small groups, families, and individuals have heard the call and asked us “what’s next?”
SESSION 10 is the final session where each group member presents a personal action plan to live justly, and as a group decides on a direction to steer your church towards deeper engagement with biblical justice.
