Romans 12:9-21, instructs Christians who are in difficult relationships on how to conduct themselves. This week, we talked about when to fight for a relationship and when to flee from it. We focused on our behavior in the face of evil and God’s promise to protect and avenge His mistreated children. Lastly, we reviewed how God defeats evil with love –a love that has the potential to convert the worst of sinners.
