“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21). We will all be offended. But offenses can become opportunities for us to turn away from our natural reactions and to receive the Lord’s response in the situation. Listen as Nate and Gabe share the dangers of reacting in our flesh – instead of overcoming evil, we become part of the evil.
As you reflect on this command, it is key to understand that God desires to use us as channels to minister His life to our enemies. How amazing it is that as we lay our lives down to the Lord, He is able to replace our attitudes of selfishness and self-protection with the life of His Son! Only through Him is it possible to overcome evil with good.
