Does God Care? Do We Care?

Words can be tiring, can’t they? And tiresome words that express untruths can be even more so! God’s people are speaking tiresome and untrue words – and God is worn out by them. As they doubt His love, as they offer Him their seconds, as they live in a way that betrays their identity in their marriages, God’s people also question His concern for justice. They accuse Him of rewarding the unrighteous and immoral, of ignoring justice. In fact, they basically state that there seems no use being faithful to Him, if He seems unconcerned with justice! God’s response is to promise that He is concerned about justice, that He will judge the unjust and immoral – in fact, He will come and do it personally. It is no mistake that these are the very words that Mark (1:2-3) uses to describe the work of John the Baptist, as he prepares for Jesus’ arrival!
