SPIRITUAL RESILIENCE

June 12, 2015

Saturday

 

Romans 12:21
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

 

 

LESSON

 

Paul again concluded with a summary. Being “overcome by evil” means giving in to the temptation to pay back evil for evil. When people do wrong, they expect to receive evil from those they have wronged. When they receive kindness instead, their hard hearts often become softer. The best way to get rid of an enemy is to turn him or her into a friend. What kind of evil do you remember in your mind? Did someone hurt you badly, was something stolen that was very valuable for you? Scripture commands us to not be overcome by evil, but to overcome evil with good.

Too many Christians fail to appropriate, recognize and utilize the power of Christ to help them do everything God asks them to do. We cannot experience what it is to be an overcomer unless we recognize and thank God for what we already have in our new identity.
