Doing Justice and Mercy

Each week we’re taking a look at a piece of the vision of Redeemer and this is it: As a church of Jesus Christ, Redeemer exists to help build a great city for all people through a movement of the gospel that brings personal conversion, community formation, social justice and cultural renewal to New York City and through it, the world.Today, we’re looking at social justice.

We’re doing it this week, partly because it’s Palm Sunday, which is the Sunday that Jesus Christ was declared the King and rode into Jerusalem. In the Bible, one of the primary things that kings did was to administer Justice. And this morning we’re going to  look at how Jesus Christ fulfills justice and how he does justice in the world. 

First, we’re gonna learn about the startling importance of justice. Secondly, the fulsome nature of justice, and thirdly, how we get the ability to do justice in the world.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 20, 2016. Series “Where We are Going: The City and the Missions”. Scripture: Isaiah 58:1-14.
