WHY NOT AVOID VENGEANCE❓

Memory verse:
Romans 12:19

Message:
There’s no way one will conceive VENGEANCE without contemplating EVIL. And to contemplate evil, one must COMPULSORILY move outside the realms of “LIGHT”, in order to pally with “DARKNESS” in the darkness. Regardless of the duration of one’s stay in the “dark regions” in such season to cogitate on or cook up a vengeance plan, and execute the same, what it literally means is that such a person had willingly surrendered or brought himself or herself under the domain and dominion of darkness. it’s more like the person is saying to the powers of darkness, “Here I am, use me; I lend myself to you as a willing instrument of evil, use me for your evil purpose”.

It’s impossible to throw mud, which one scooped with his or her bare hands, without getting one’s hand dirtied. The same way, it’s impossible to conceive vengeance without partnering with darkness.

Through when some people get to execute the vengeance they conceived, they may feel that justice has been served. But the question is: on whose law was such justice based- God’s, Satan’s, or men? Of course, it’s not God’s law. God clearly states that vengeance belongs to Him (Deut. 32:35). So, it must either be man’s or Satan’s law. And whether it is Satan’s or of men, it’s surely a faulty law. The very perfection of both entities makes it practically impossible for whatever law they promulgate against God’s clear edict to be faultless. And any justice that is premised on a faulty law is no justice at all; “An unjust law”, as Saint Augustine rightly observed, “is no law at all.”

In other words, in sight of God, vengeance is nothing but anarchy, in spite of what names human tag it. Whosoever conceives and executes vengeance lives the life of a rebel against his or her creator. Before God, evil is evil, be it committed as an offense or as a vengeance. And as the Scriptures says, “Though hand join in hand, the wicked will not go unpunished” (Proverbs 11:21). God will not hold the guilty guiltless. Avoid vengeance!


CONTROLLING THOUGHT:
He alone, that created both light and darkness, is the only One qualified to take vengeance; for He created us all. Avoid vengeance.

PRAYER:
Lord, grant me a heart that forgives rather than seek vengeance. Amen.

BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR:
2Kings 7-8; Matthew 13:1-30.
