This chapter has always been one which challenges and also encourages me. None of us want to be sacrifices, it brings up thoughts of animals being laid on an altar to be killed. But be encouraged by the word LIVING in the first verse of our chapter for the month.
"How long before you judge and take revenge on those on earth who shed our blood?" Paul reminds us that we should not take revenge, but leave that to God. Do you find that hard to do? He calls us to be "in the world but not of the world"!
