Conquer

Posted: September 25, 2017

When I was 19, I visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland.  As you can imagine, it made me physically ill to tour such a place.  Our team leader kept repeating a quote credited to Edmund Burke:  "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."  Jesus is the opposite of everything evil, and as his ambassadors, we have a responsibility to speak up when we see evil in our world.

"Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good."  Romans 12:22

Jesus, I want to stand for all that You stand for:  goodness, love, and grace.  Help me to be bold when I see evil around me, and give me eyes to see those who are hurting and need You.  Amen.
