Let us therefore have Christ-like minds, words, works, ideas, theories that will bring forth Christ-like worlds in our lives, worlds of justice.

Lord, our outcry today is for You to transform us into righteous, fair and just persons in this world. Transform us in such a way that we shall seek justice for all in this broken world. We have to request the Lord to help us embrace the vision and purpose  of justice. Without this vision, the purpose of justice will perish. We must have a non tolerance attitude towards injustice.

It is important that we ask our Lord to make our political, justice, church and other leaders examples to our society. They must build sound systems and policies of justice. They must nurture and cherish the vision of justice. We need to have heads, hands and hearts for justice so that we can think, work hard and live to obtain justice in our communities today. Transformation as conversion means to leave the old mindsets. thought patterns and logics and live with new ones.

Let us therefore have Christ-like minds, words, works, ideas, theories that will bring forth Christ-like worlds in our lives, worlds of justice.

PRAYER

Lord, we pray to convert us. Help us to turn away from untruth, anti-truths, half- truths, hidden- truths, lies to You Who is the Truth and the Light. Lord help us to look at ourselves through the eyes of Christ, and to look at others through the eyes of Christ, and to look at all matters through the eyes of Christ so that justice can prevail in our lives and in the world today. We thank you for your presence in our lives. Amen.

BIBLE VERSE: ROMANS 3:19-26

Ons gebed moet wees dat God ons transformeerders van geregtigheid moet maak. Daar waar onreg en onregverdige dinge plaasvind, moet ons God verteenwoordig deur vir geregtgheid te staan. God verwag van Sy kinders om Hom te volg en n Christus – voorbeeld na te streef en te volg.

Dit is van kardinale belang dat ons Kerk, politieke en ander leiers in ons samelewing, leiers van geregtigheid moet wees.Hulle moet  oppassers en beskermers van geregtigheid wees. Ons eie lewe moet transformeer vanaf n onregverdige en ongeregtige lewe na een van geregtigheid en regverdigheid 

Laat ons denke, woorde en dade wees soos die van Christus en dit sal n Christus-wereld vir ons oopmaak, n wereld vol van geregtigheid.

GEBED

God van geregtigheid, dankie dat u ons transformeer sodat ons n lewe van geregtigheid in U kan leef. Maak ons vry van rassisme in Suid Afrika, en help ons om almal menswaardig en met geregtigheid te hanteer. Voor U is almal gelyk en U is aan almal n God. Maak ons vatbaar vir geregtigheid onder mekaar.Amen
