As good Christian people, it is our responsibility to model the actions of Jesus Christ and to do what is right in every situation. Because we are so busy in our own lives, many times we prefer that someone else – such as the government, do the hard work. This is applicable especially concerning the correctional and judicial systems in particular. It is easier not to take the time to educate ourselves about what is happening, what is wrong and how we, as individuals, can help improve it. “…But to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.”
God has promised to bless the people of faith. If we are obedient followers of Christ, according to 2 Chronicles 7:14, “….He will heal our land.” We can make a difference according to the prophet David in Psalms 1, “…and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” It is our responsibility to do justly and love mercy according to Micah 6:8.
To obtain the promises of God requires action. When we do what is right, we will be blessed, our families will be blessed and in our nation will be blessed. We can work together to accomplish the will of God through the vision of like-minded people to change public policy to a more restorative and productive policy, thereby creating safer communities.
Thank you for getting involved.
