An eye for an I won’t 1 Peter 3:8-9 Mark 14:38

1 Peter 3:8-9 (NIV)
8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Mark 14:38 (NIV)
38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Radical. Love. How else does an eye for an eye become an eye for an I won’t?

Watch and pray that you don’t fall into temptation. Watch that inclination toward evil. The thought. The resentment. The lie. The act. 

We go there so easily, like its just natural to us.

The world needs the radical teaching of Christ now more than ever. The radical love to battle evil. A new day. A new way. A new creation.
