Justice and Worship tour
Steps of Justice is offering a unique experience that combines justice awareness, story and intercessory worship. This event, called ‘An Evening of Justice and Worship,’ will be a place where you can come and hear about the issues of injustice in our world as well as some personal stories of how God is moving his church to participate in justice ministry. In addition, this event will present an opportunity to respond in worship and cry out to God together on behalf of the billions of people in our world who are hurting, oppressed and forgotten. Throughout the night, attendees will be challenged to discover from God what next steps they can take to do justice.
How did this evening come about? We read in Acts 16 a story about Paul and Silas in prison They were in prison because the people of Philippi accused them of disturbing the city. I am quoting the rest of the story here. . “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them,and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bonds were unfastened. When the jailer woke up and saw that the prison doors were open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. But Paul cried with a loud voice, ‘do not harm yourself, for we are all here.”
It is amazing that as a result of Paul and Silas’s worship to God that their chains were broken. Not just their chains though, but the chains of all the prisoners in the jail were broken as well, they were free. While looking at this story we thought of the 27 million slaves in the world today. We thought of the 2 million children who are bought and sold into the global sex trade. We thought of the woman or child that is trafficked every 10 seconds into the United States for forced labor. We thought about their chains being broken and them being set free. So, we created an evening where we can get educated on some of these huge issues, hear Gods heart for the poor and oppressed and worship and intercede on their behalf.
These evenings run 90 minutes long and include teaching on justice issues, worship and intercession for the poor and oppressed, stories of others who have stood up and taken steps of justice on their behalf and offers resources and ways that youand I can get involved.
