Joy and Justice

by IJM Institute

“God beckons and woos us because he knows that inexplicable joy comes from following him into the work of bringing freedom and justice.”
The Justice Calling, Chapter 6, pg. 156

The work of justice and a spirit of joy seem as if two separate aspects of life that would never be intertwined. Two terms that would rarely be set next to one another, let alone given space to interact. One pulls you into the depth of evil in this world and the other is an overwhelming fullness of life and abundance.

Mala* was 16 years old when International Justice Mission (IJM) first met her. She had been trapped in one of Kolkata’s infamous red-light districts for nearly a year and she had lost hope of any escape. It was one of the worst cases International Justice Mission had seen (The Justice Calling, Chapter 7pg. 165). Mala and the other girls in the brothel were being raped between 10 and 20 times a day by brothel customers. If they tried to resist they were beaten.
