Jesus’ entire ministry shows him bringing hope, liberation and inclusion to everyone in all areas of their lives, especially those who were marginalised and downtrodden. This theme of restoration runs throughout the Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, we see God’s story of salvation unfold, as he invites his people to help bring restoration. As Christians we are called to be involved in advocacy work as part of this picture of ‘putting things right’.
Jesus challenged the people, systems and structures that created injustice of his day. Our faith is a response to good news and it demands a response to injustice. In our fragmented world, we’re still called to proclaim this good news and that includes challenging the systems that keep people in poverty. God has placed Christians in many different areas of work and levels of society, all of which need to be influenced and transformed if we’re to see poverty alleviated.
To help get a fair and sustainable world, we need a big movement for change, and we believe that the church is well placed to lead it. Join with us and be part of generation that grabs hold of this hope, the people who take joy in their responsibility to build a better world for God’s glory.
