MORNINGTIME 2567
 
For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it , if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, YE SHALL TAKE IT PATIENTLY? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it , YE TAKE IT PATIENTLY, this is acceptable with God.  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, THAT YE SHOULD FOLLOW HIS STEPS: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:  WHO, when he was reviled, REVILED NOT AGAIN; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to Him that judgeth righteously: 1 Peter 2:19-23. This pretty much kills all reasons,  excuses, justifications, and otherwise for "Payback time" when we Believers get done dirty. "Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord". Romans 12:19. See, nothing to worry about here, God Himself will take care of any and every problem we may have when someone doesn't treat us right. Be very careful here, do you have even a shred of vengeance still in your heart? Did someone do you so badly that you want them to stand in Hell for ALL of Eternity??? That's A L O N G  T I M E  because someone did you 10 minutes of dirtiness. (You fill in the time). So what's all this saying? Whether you suffer righteously, or wrongly, SUFFER PATIENTLY, and keep on going. When Christ, the most Holy Righteous man to ever walk this earth suffered much, and even death at the hands of sinners, AND FORGAVE THEM ALL, that is the Example for our own life to follow. Did you notice the "test" here? You get done dirty, God says "I'll kill them all", QUICK, tell God, "No Lord, Save then, I Forgive then, don't send them to Hell, I've done worse to You than they've ever done to me". This is True Vengeance, kill them with Kindness, YOU pay them back with A Love you don't have. Let Christ shine all over you AND them as you win them back to Christ, another lost sheep coming Home. Now you both can, Be Blessed.
