„Wir liegen vor dir mit unserem Gebet
und vertrauen nicht auf unsere Gerechtigkeit,
sondern auf deine große Barmherzigkeit.“

In welcher Beziehung steht Gottes Gerechtigkeit zu seiner Barmherzigkeit?
Gerechtigkeit und Barmherzigkeit werden eins!

In welcher Beziehung steht Gottes Gerechtigkeit zu meiner Gerechtigkeit?

Gerechtigkeit = Gemeinschaftstreue!!

Vertikal: Gott – Volk + Volk – Gott!

Horizontal: ich und die Menschen neben mir! Vor allem die Menschen in Not.

In welcher Beziehung steht meine Gerechtigkeit zu unserer Gerechtigkeit?

Solidarität mit den Sündern – innerhalb und außerhalb der Gemeinde!?

Daniel 3:21-28

21Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. 23And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 24Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellers, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 25He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. 26Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, came forth of the midst of the fire. 27And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellers, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. 28Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
