Paul urges us to sanctify our bodies by making them servants of justice. Speaking of his own life, his vocation and his apostolic ministry, Paul frequently calls himself a "servant", especially a "servant of Jesus Christ". We have noted in these pages before that Paul almost certainly derived this name of servant from reflection on the "Servant Songs" in the Prophecy of Isaiah as applied to Jesus both by Jesus Himself and by the early Church. Since Jesus was a suffering servant, Paul must in his own way become a suffering servant. So indeed must every follower of Jesus.
Scripture refers to Jesus as "just" (Mt. 27:19; 1 Pt. 3:18; 1 Jn. 1:9), and the general picture of Jesus, even as a human person, is one of a man characterized by innocence and justice, sinlessness and holiness. We who follow Jesus must strive to be like Him. We must strive to be servant of justice.
The notions of "suffering servant" and "servant of justice" come together. Jesus taught us to turn the other cheek; we must be prepared to suffer, to be victims even of injustice, rather than be the cause of any injustice whatsoever.
Father in heaven, send Your Holy Spirit to guide us in the ways of truth and justice. Let us never follow the counsel of the wicked nor walk in the ways of sinners.
