Justice, people seek, demanding for them.
Railing, begging, striving, and bribing for their suit.
Claiming validity, for their “just” sake.
Unjust they be, though supposed claiming the truth.
Justice is my right, people declare.
Seeking to obtain it for themselves is their claim.
Wanting the profit and advantage from its reaping,
Shouting for justice, requiring, demanding it be made.
Justice, we seek, when we are unjust.
Claiming to be weakened, received harm from a hand.
Obtained unjust actions and words that have harmed,
We cry for justice for us; it’s for what we demand.
Seeking justice when we’re unjust seems unbalanced, untrue.
Why do we seek for our purpose that which we don’t bestow?
Striving always to be ahead, caring not for other’s lives now;
Wanting what we can get, uncaring what they are owed.
Justice we seek, we cry for, we plead.
Justice is not what we give, what we think, or what we heed.
Justice requires a person to be just, an impossible human task.
No one is always just, always right, sin makes sure of that.
Justness, rightness, can’t be defined by humanity;
God’s character defines it, the always righteous Holy One.
Humanity strives but fails to do what is right;
Weakness, temptation, sin separates and makes alone.
For this reason, humanity’s sin and God’s great love,
The Father sent the Son to live as man yet sinless to be the One.
The One who lived to die so sins may be cleansed,
The One who died so God would make righteous, just, everyone.
Justice we seek as if we’re the most important person alive.
Christ came and loved to show each His love and make right.
Nothing we can give nor anything we can do
Gives the salvation Christ gives, and, with it, eternal life.
Come as a child, nothing to give, no way to earn;
Righteousness from God comes by belief in Christ alone.
Jesus taught belief in Him alone, God’s love justifies;
What God asks of you is belief, for His grace makes you whole.
Justice we demand, yet justice we don’t give.
God demanded nothing for your sins to be cleansed.
He provided everything needed for you to be justified;
You pay Him nothing for the redemption price of your sins.
Though you owe God everything since your sins caused your death,
He paid the whole price, redeemed you, now you are fully cleansed.
Once you believe in Jesus as the Redeemer for your sins,
God’s grace and His cost are fully repaid as He welcomes you in.
As one of His children, cleansed, saved, redeemed,
Your only requirement is to answer the “Follow Me” of Christ’s beckoning.
“Follow Me with your life, with your actions, words, and thought.
Love Me, love your neighbor with your whole being, your whole heart.
Sell all you have, give to the hurt, lost, and needy;
Give your right to yourself to serve Me and others to eternity.”
These things Jesus taught as He spoke to the faithful, rich man.
The utmost he wouldn’t give though he followed the law of the land.
All that’s written cannot give you righteousness and peace;
Only through God’s gift, Jesus’ sacrifice, can we be justified, find justice, and all we need.
This all that God gives is eternal life and relationship with Him;
It’s better than all we can think, ever want, demand, or conceive.
It’s the ultimate of God, the source for all good things.
The definer of truth, justice, and giver of everything we need.
Justice we demanded and justice God gave.
At the cost of His Son by Whom we received His grace.
The power of death held no sway over His mighty power;
He rose from the grave and gave us cleansing and victory for every hour.
Jesus calls to us as we called to the judge;
“Justice,” I give, “with mercy and love.”
“Seek Me and find Me, I wait for you to come.
Believe in Me and receive from the depths of My love.”
Come to the Savior, Who for your life He died.
Come see the cross where He was crucified.
Give Him your life, your heart, everything,
And He will give you grace, justification, love, and all you need.
“For it is My Father’s will that all who see His Son and believe in Him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day.” (John 6:40 [NLT])
“The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” (John 6:63 [NLT])
Note: Read Luke 18 and John 6 for more understanding of Jesus’ teaching as referred to in this poem.
