The Time For Justice

We watched The Great Debaters the other night. It's a great story about a little black college called Marshall that was the first black college to debate Harvard. There are quite a few great lines, but there was a speech given when they were granted their first and unprecedented opportunity to debate a white school in Oklahoma City. Samantha, one of the students, had this to say-

My opponent says today is not the day for whites and coloreds to go to the same college. To share the same campus. To walk into the same classroom. Well, would you kindly tell me when that day is gonna come? Is it going to come tomorrow? Is it going to come next week? In a hundred years? Never? No, the time for justice, the time for freedom, and the time for equality is always, is always right now!

I love that. The time for justice IS always NOW. And God is calling his church to make sure that we don't wait.
