Part of my love for christ is stemmed from his passions. I love that he cares so much for widows and orphans. I love that justice and mercy is talked about so much and so passionately in the bible. That in Isaiah it is said that true fasting is to loose the chains of injustice, set the oppressed free, share your food with the hungry and provide the poor wanderer with shelter, clothing the naked and not turning away from your family, and in James it says religion that God our father accepts as pure and faultless is to look after orphans and widows in their distress. I can’t say enough about how beautiful this makes Jesus to me. I love him.
