Vengeance – What We Must Do
Vengeance – What we must do
1. Accept God’s sovereignty over all of life
Trust Him for divine justice now and for eventual divine justice
2. Be thankful for Spiritual life and sight
Some people are spiritually blind – Some people have hardened hearts
Leap for joy when you are treated shamefully
4. Bless those who hurt you
They do not know what they are doing
5. Understand your calling
I Peter 2:21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
22 “Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;
23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;
6. Hold people accountable for their wrong behavior
Do not follow them – Do not submit to them
Some people are loyal to systems more than to God
7. We are to walk a fine line.
On the one hand we are to bless those who curse us.
On the other hand we are not to allow men to harm each other- I Thess. 5:14-15
And we are to not follow evil men – I Tim. 5:20.
It is a fine line to walk.
It is the line we are called to walk.
