Welcome to our website!
Our prayer is that we are a church that God can use to bless and strengthen you by the power of Jesus, and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and freedom. Rowandale Baptist Church is here for you. We want to function as a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord, and to celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word of God, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you! We hope to see you soon!
When we feel wronged, our knee-jerk reaction is often revenge. In our minds – and in the moment – we feel that our world has become imbalanced and we attempt to address that imbalance.
Revenge is a natural and automatic reaction to a sense of imbalance caused by intended or unintended wrongdoing. Once cooler heads prevail, though, most of us would agree that revenge is rarely productive or positive at restoring that imbalance… at least when we’re the ones taking revenge.
Romans 12:19 instructs us to leave the work of revenge to God. This opens up an interesting line of thought. While most of us would consider revenge to be a negative emotion that we must work at avoiding, there does seem to be a holy side to this emotion if God himself is taking revenge.
Psalm 94 gives us some clues into how we should understand vengeance. This week we’ll examine Psalm 94 to see what it says about the thought and act of revenge. Along the way we’ll apply some tools to unpack the Psalm and we’ll discover that the holy view of vengeance has a lot to do with the people involved – the wrongdoer, the sufferer, and God himself.
