Awhile back I visited a mini conference in the Los Angeles area with Gary Haugen as the speaker. Gary Haugen is founder and president of International Justice Mission, a DC based organization that works in a number of countries to combat slavery and ultimately wipe it out completely.
Immediately following the quote above, Gary said, “We are
called to help rescue people.” I agree with Gary. As I continue to seek in the
Bible what God would have of me in this life, I am more and more convinced that
it is the work of justice. In fact, God doesn’t even want my offering and
worship to him if I’m not obeying his commands to care and serve those in need.
Read Isaiah 58 and you'll see what I mean.
