Justice: Are You Getting What You Deserve? 
So, what do you think? Is life being fair with you or are you being unjustly treated? Those are questions people ask throughout their lives. And for some, those same issues have destroyed their inner lives. When we feel that we’ve not gotten what is coming to us while others we know have received what we haven’t, it is easy for an acidic-like bitterness to creep through every part of our lives, causing us to be negative and cynical about everything. 

There is the saying, “Life is not fair.” That is spot on, especially when it comes to human justice. This weekend we’re going to be studying the various trials of Jesus which led to his crucifixion. Each one was a mockery of justice to say the least. What is startling is Jesus did nothing to stop the outrage. It seems he had confidence in a higher justice, one that was able to take the injustice which was going on in his life and transform it into the greatest good. And that is exactly what happened on Easter Sunday morning! 

One of the great mistakes in life is to compare what’s going on in our lives with what is taking place in the lives of other people around us. All too often, we sense ourselves coming out on the short end. The great message of Easter is that we don’t get what we deserve, we get what God won for us. If you are feeling a little let down by life because you aren’t getting what you want, join us for one of our worship services this weekend and get filled up with what God wants to give you. Once you experience that, you won’t need to feel cheated out of anything. 

  Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
