Faith Commitment
Faith Commitment
The Christian focus of HILS has many dimensions. It demands excellence in all things, because all our lives are to honor God. It flows into spiritual worship and praise for all His glory and love. It calls us to a personal relationship with Christ as Lord and Savior, and the new creation His Spirit molds in us. It invites us to a life of service toward others. It creates a passion to share the ”good news” of our resurrected Lord’s love, grace, and His Kingdom.
Objective truth and reality exists, not only in the scientific and technological arenas, but also in moral and spiritual spheres.

All dimensions of life fall within God’s sovereignty and redemption, and thus our intellectual lives as well as our moral character are aspects of our Godly commitment; demanding the highest of our energies and passions as we seek wisdom.
Creation, as the creative work of God, demands respect for life, for the special image of God in every person, and an amazement at the intricate design of the Creator and a legal order that reflects these truths. Evil and sin are realities which corrupt personal, institutional, and national life, and reflect humankinds resistance to accountability before God as His creation.

The law, while it is called to be an instrument of justice and peace, is often distorted and becomes a vehicle of privilege and discrimination. When law is corrupted, it loses its moral authority and invites disrespect, disobedience, and even rebellion. Doing justice at every level of human endeavor is an aspect of faithfulness to, and the worship of, God. Religious ceremonies and rituals are an offense to God when they are not accompanied by justice and righteousness. Christ calls lawyers to use their knowledge and skills to be not only advocates and counselors, but also peacemakers and healers in a world tragically torn by hatreds, divisions, and bitterness.

All of life, including the study and practice of law, comes within the Lordship of Christ and is to be undertaken in a spirit of obedience, love, and humility.
Positions of trust and responsibility in public and private life are to be undertaken as servants of God and of our “neighbors.” Government, properly framed and exercised, is a gift of God for public order and a healthy society. But government, when not subject to moral standards and principles of justice, is subject to prophetic denunciation and God’s judgment.

The gracious love of God, supremely demonstrated in Jesus Christ, invites us to experience forgiveness and redemption as we acknowledge that only in His grace can we find peace and wholeness. This experience transforms not only our personal internal life, but also the way we understand and engage in our work and professions.

God calls us to lives of integrity, consistency, honesty, and purity in personal and professional life. God’s Spirit leads us sometimes consciously, other times by natural or divine gifts and opportunities, to specific arenas of vocation and calling. This enables us to be used for His purposes and in the furtherance of His Kingdom.

Our Lord taught us that the highest way is love, and that all other gifts become hollow without love. This love must be demonstrated toward all persons regardless of their social, political, racial, ethnic, or religious identity.
