John Piper on God's Future Vengance

"This future grace of God's judgement is promised to us as a means of helping us overcome a spirit of revenge and bitterness ... Paul's argument is that we should not take vengeance because vengeance belongs to the Lord. And to motivate us to lay down our vengeful desires, He gives us a promise - which we now know is a promise of future grace - "I will repay" says the Lord".

John Piper - "Future Grace" - IVP, Leicester (1995) - (p264).
