Thirsting for Righteousness

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6 The Scriptures tell us that righteousness and justice are the foundation of God’s throne (Psalm 89:14). But when we see families held in slavery, vulnerable girls sexually assaulted, widows forced from their homes, innocent men and women in prison—the very foundation by which God established right order and governance appears shaken. The forces of evil in the world... Read More

Don't Stare, Say Hello!

Shelby Rabjohn has a message for us to help us grow in relationship with our special needs families.

An Attitude of Meekness

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5 As justice seekers, we are bold and courageous in our prayers and determined in our actions. We zealously take hold of the vision to seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow (Isaiah 1:17). And because God enables us to accomplish amazing things, we can be tempted to hold our boldness, our passion and our zeal as ideals. But Jesus tells us that the meek shall inherit the... Read More

Comforting the Mourners

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4 As IJM confronts injustice around the world, we find there is much to mourn: There are 40 million slaves in the world today—more than at any other time in human history. Thousands of widows are literally fighting for their lives because their land and only source of provision has been violently stolen away from them. 1 in 4 slaves is a child. Innocent men and women are arrested,... Read More

A Reflection on Ash Wednesday

A devotion from Pastor Doug Meyer based on his Ash Wednesday message: I have a confession to make – I do not like cleaning. I do not like making my bed, or doing the dishes, or running the vacuum, or washing and putting away the laundry. I do not like cleaning out my garage or washing my car. But… I really like sleeping on clean sheets and eating off clean plates. I like the smell and feel of a clean house and car. I like walking in to my garage and looking... Read More

This year, we encourage you to discover a Lenten fast that will connect you with those suffering from human trafficking. Below are listed some common contributions to human trafficking. Consider fasting from one or more of these items either throughout Lent or perhaps try one per week of Lent. Fast from: ... Read More

The Work of Solitude

“Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him and he began to teach them saying: ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.’ ” Matthew 5:1-3 Picture this scene: Jesus on the mountainside, drawn away from the crowds. Before his disciples reach him, we can imagine Christ in sacred moments of solitude and prayer. He withdrew from those seeking him and, for a moment, laid aside the... Read More
