Overcomer: Overcoming Hate: Romans 12:9-21

About This Message

 

1. HATE EVIL

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.  Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Romans 12:9-11 (CSB)

2. DON’T REPAY EVIL

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.  If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.  Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.
Romans 12:17-19 (CSB)

3. DO GOOD TO THOSE WHO DO EVIL

On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.  In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”  Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12:20-21 (NIV)
