We have the almost unimaginable opportunity to be called friends of God and, to facilitate this, He has given us the assurance that He has shared in—and can relate to—all of the pain and hardship we as human beings endure in this life.

Even when we are unable to act on them, God cares about our feelings concerning right and wrong. James Weldon Johnson poetically captured how God wants us to act on our feelings with the following quote: “I will not allow one prejudiced person or one million or one hundred million to blight my life. I will not let prejudice or any of its attendant humiliations and injustices bear me down to spiritual defeat. My inner life is mine, and I shall defend and maintain its integrity against all the powers of hell.”
Sermon Challenge: Examine your feelings about injustice in this world, and make sure that God can identify you as one who cares deeply about the things He cares about.
