Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
It’s easy to see that the devil is busy stirring up evil all over the world. That’s why we, as Christians, need to keep vigilant and put on the whole armor of God. Don’t repay evil for evil, instead love your enemies and pray for them. Keep doing good deeds and don’t let evil weaken you. Be strong and courageous in your faith, be an overcomer.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret–it leads only to evil.
Sometimes, during an argument, in the heat of the moment we say things we don’t mean. We let our anger get the best of us and we lose control of our emotions. If you find yourself on either side of this situation you need to do two things: First, let go of your anger, it only leads to evil; and second, forgive each other because your heavenly Fathers forgives you. (Matthew 6:14)
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
There is no denying that evil exists in this world. Some may ask why God allows horrible events to happen. The truth is we may never have the answer to this question. What we do know is that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to offer salvation to all. Even though we may suffer in this world, as Christians, we have the hope of eternal life with God.
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
Evil is all around us all we have to do is turn on the evening news to see proof of the evil in this world. To live a peaceful life, the Bible tells us to turn from evil. This includes evil people, evil things, and all things evil. Instead, do good, according to God’s Word. Embrace peace in every area of your life through your faith in God.
