Passage: Romans 12:17-21 Speaker: Pastor Jon Kopp Series: A Community of Sacrificial Saints
Today, we turn our attention back to the various aspects of authentic love that Paul has been laying out in Romans 12:7-21. In Romans 12:17-21, Paul shares with us that Christians overcome evil done against them with good from the gospel. When we know that God's wrath against our evil was poured out on Jesus, we are empowered to dispense good to those that give us evil. We are freed from taking up offenses ourselves. This is not natural at all! The only way this can take place is if we are being transformed in the renewing of our minds. As a Christian, our whole being can be transformed with the truths of the gospel, so that we can respond to evil the way our gracious God does. Would you honestly and prayerfully look at how you respond to evil?
