DAY 89: "REVENGE" (Romans 12:19-21)- "REVENGE VS SELF DEFENSE"

Good morning my brothers and sisters in Christ,


SUMMARY:

Jared spoke about the concept of revenge, citing Romans 12:19 which states that believers should not avenge themselves, but instead, leave room for God's wrath. He emphasized that while justice is desired, vengeance is not a believer's prerogative. Instead, they are called to forgive and trust in God's sovereign justice. He touched upon the process of deification and the importance of discipline, obedience, self-denial, and seeking God's truth through prayer and Scripture. Jared distinguished between self-defense and revenge, advising participants to respond to insults or petty nonsense with good actions rather than evil.


Justice, Forgiveness, and Non-Retaliation (TIME 0:00)

He emphasized that while justice is desired, vengeance is not a believer's prerogative. Instead, they are called to forgive and trust in God's sovereign justice. He ended by advising against retaliating if life is not in danger and elaborated on the biblical warning against violence.


Love, Deification, and Judgment (TIME 7:39)

He elaborated on the idea of perfect love, which involves overcoming evil with good and treating enemies as close family members. Jared also touched upon the process of deification, which involves discipline, obedience, self-denial, and seeking God's truth through prayer and Scripture. Finally, he closed the discussion with a reference to 2 Corinthians 5:10, which speaks of each person's accountability before the judgment seat of Christ based on their actions.


Seeking God's Will: Self-Defense or Revenge? (TIME 16:02)

Jared distinguished between self-defense and revenge, advising participants to respond to insults or petty nonsense with good actions rather than evil. He clarified that defending oneself or a loved one from imminent danger is justifiable, but unnecessary evil should be avoided. He encouraged others to continually seek, ask, and knock in their spiritual journey and emphasized the importance of focusing on God's will rather than personal concerns to maintain a clear perspective. He concluded by wishing peace upon everyone and expressing his love for the community.
