Romans 12:17-21
2 You Want Me to Heap Burning Coals on People's Heads?

This the second sermon in the You Want Me to do What? series.

Romans 12:20 talks about heaping burning coals on the head of our enemies. What does that mean? Is that a good thing or a bad thing? The context of this verse talks about how to overcome evil with good. This also raises a question: what evil - the evil done to me or the evil I am tempted to do to those who have hurt me? This sermon will help you understand this strange phrase and remind you that repaying evil with good may or may not change your enemy into a friend, but it reflects Christlikeness to those who have hurt us and it's also good for our own wellbeing.
