Paul and Silas had the spirit of Christ, not the spirit of revenge. Their hearts, filled with the love of the Savior, had no room for malice against their persecutors.

We wrestle not against flesh and blood, declares Paul, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world. Ephesians 6:12
