The F Word + A Bad Joke (Wk 3)


Revenge is sweet. Have you heard that before? Sure we can believe that about others but are we aware of how true that is for ourselves. Revenge is one of the most negative outcomes of hurt in our lives and whether we are aware of it or not, we are all guilty of it. Perhaps not in the big dramatic ways that we associate with the word but in a cold shoulder to a word spoken against you, a spark of gossip when you feel rejected, the silent treatment when things don’t go your way. In order for us to move to a place of reconciliation as Jesus desires for all of us, we need to understand what revenge is and how we can diffuse it. Pastor Jason opens up the story of Samson for us this week as we consider where revenge leads us and what Jesus wants for us.
