As Israel mourns the death of three young men, I am praying for the Israeli government to employ every means of their God-given authority to function in the capacity of “common grace servants” to exact retributive justice upon the evil doers who are guilty of these murders.
Paul the Apostle framed it like this in Romans 13:
“Governing authorities have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God himself has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
For rulers hold terror for those who do evil….because rulers have been given the sword to execute punishment upon evil doers and in doing so, they are acting as God’s agents of divine wrath.”
May it be so Lord!
