Faith in action

Romans 12 is a challenging piece of scripture – I encourage you to go read it. But in verses 17 – 21, it talks about crazy things like doing what is right, not repaying evil with evil and feeding our enemies. Say whaaaat?!

How are you doing in these areas though? Are you praying for the people you don’t like? Are you reaching out to those who are different, even difficult? Are you trusting that God is going to avenge the things that need avenging – revenge cannot be our thing?

This my friends, is faith in action. How can you overcome evil with good this next week?


Guide me God!


Here’s a great psalm-prayer to hang on to this week – no matter what lies ahead: exams, studying, hectic amounts of work, decisions about the future, or new adventures. Here’s a picture of the kind of God who will be with us:

‘The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honour to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me…’
