SUB THEME: Mandate of God to Earthly Leaders - 2

TOPIC: Justice 

TEXT: Deut. 16:18-22


i. to discuss the biblical injunction on righteous justice and examine how faithful our earthly leaders are in delivering justice according to God’s mandate.


Today is another significant day in the Church calendar, the Rogation Sunday, a day set aside to ask or plead for God’s mercy. It is important to note that the God of mercy is equally the God of justice and that He requires justice from us in all our deeds.Our text today clearly shows God’s mandate to leadersin delivering justice to their people. 

How faithful are contemporary leaders to this mandate? Let us discuss this through our Study Guide.


1. From the Bible passage today (Deut. 16:18-22), what are the mandates of God to judges? Compare Lev 19:15

2. Compare Pro. 29:2 with 1Kings 10:8, Gen 18:19 and expatiate on the benefits of righteous justice in the society.

3. Critically examine some of the actions of our contemporary leaders and evaluate how faithful they are on issues relating to social justice.

4. Amos 5:24 says, “But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.”Discuss how Christians can influencethe society by their words (preaching) and deeds.


Justice is not a mere responsibility for our leaders, it is a mandate of God to them for their reign to usher in peace, joy and progress to the people they serve. Adhering to this will justify their reign as serving God and humanity.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: While Justice brings Joy, Injustice brings sorrow.

Memory Verse: Lev19:15 “Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbours”.
