For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.
To turn the other cheek is not to be a doormat: it’s to be with Christ in the vulnerable places in our lives and relationships. To establish justice we can”t just enact policies from a place of power: we have to be vulnerable and share our power.
Jesus sees the law not as a legal hoop to jump through but as an invitation to love. Justice comes about when we lovingly care for the other person as a person, not as an object of our feelings or opinions.
