Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. ~ Isaiah 1: 16-17
Before we get busy doing what is right. Before we fight for justice and defend the opressed. Before we go save the world... we have to get ourselves in order.
Want to be clean? Confess yourself to God. Get to the truth of the matter. Then confess to a brother who will hold you accountable.
Then... go defend the oppresed and take up the fight for the fatherless and the broken.
