Not a ‘Do It Yourself’ Project

Romans 12:19 (ESV)
19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
A claim of belonging to Jesus Christ is undermined by any effort
on our part to seek to avenge ourselves of wrongs, real or imagined. The mark of a true Christian is that he / she trusts God to resolve all matters in conflict in a way that is God honoring and by far the best for us. If we seek to avenge ourselves, we are rejecting the promises of God and trying to live life on our own terms. This we cannot do. Trust Jesus – he is the Answer. Amen.
