Romans Devotional- Day 61


SCRIPTURES TO READ: Romans 12:17-21

17 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. 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.” 20 To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.


QUESTIONS TO ANSWER:

1. How are Christians to overcome evil? (V21)
2. What two practical instructions does Paul provide Christians with to help them overcome evil with good? (Vv19-20)
3. What is the result of meeting the needs of our enemies? (V20)
4. Paul quotes from Proverbs 25:21-22. What point do you think Paul is making by using the Proverb “for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head”?
