Evening: Psalm 33; Exodus 19:3-8a, 16-20; I Peter 2:4-10
Some accused Jesus of using evil to combat evil. They said he was an agent of evil. But, Jesus pointed out, if he were evil’s agent, evil would be divided against itself, and a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. Evil cannot defeat evil. When evil is defeated – and we all know instances of that – it is by the power of goodness. God is at work everywhere in the world. And this much is clear … you cannot be both for God and against God. You have to choose.
