LOVE YOUR ENEMIES SAYS THE LORD.

THE CALLED & CHOSEN:
DO WE SEEK VENGEANCE AGAINST THOSE WHO HATE US OUR GUTS, OR DO WE FORGIVE AND PRAY FOR THEM AS REQUIRED?
MATTHEW, 5:-44 “BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES AND PRAY FOR THOSE WHO PERSECUTE YOU.”
THESE ARE THE SPOKEN WORDS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO ALL HIS FOLLOWERS.
CHRIST DISCIPLESHIP IS A FINE-LINE THAT MUST BE TREAD CAUTIOUSLY.
THEREFORE TO WISH OUR SWORN ENEMIES THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT THE LORD REQUIRED IS CONTRADICTORY TO THE COURSE OF OUR DISCIPLESHIP.
SOME MAY USE PSALM, 35 TO ARGUE THEIR POINT OF NOT WISHING THEIR ENEMIES WELL. BUT THAT WAS BEFORE OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST THE ONE WHO DIED ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY AND CARRIED ALL OUR GUILT, GAVE US THE COMMANDMENT OF LOVING OUR ENEMIES.
1 PETER, 3:-9 “DO NOT REPAY EVIL WITH EVIL OR INSULT WITH INSULT. ON THE CONTRARY, REPAY EVIL WITH BLESSING, BECAUSE TO THIS YOU WERE CALLED SO THAT YOU MAY INHERIT BLESSING.”
ON THAT, OUR FASTING AND PRAYING TO GOD TO DESTROY OUR ENEMIES IS A MERE WASTING OF TIME AND ALSO IT IS UNCHRISTIAN TO PAY EVIL WITH EVIL.
PROVERBS, 16:-7 “WHEN A MAN’S WAYS PLEASE THE LORD, HE MAKES EVEN HIS ENEMIES TO BE AT PEACE WITH HIM.”
IN CONCLUSION: WE SHOULD LOVE THE LORD OUR GOD WITH ALL OUR HEARTS AND FORGET ABOUT THOSE WHO ARE STRONGLY AGAINST US.
PSALM, 118:-6-7 “THE LORD IS ON OUR SIDE, WE SHALL NOT FEAR WHAT CAN MAN DO UNTO US? THE LORD TAKETH OUR PART WITH THEM THAT HELP US.”
BE OBEDIENT TO GOD, AND YOU SHALL FIND PEACE AMONG YOUR ENEMIES.
MAY WE NOT LABOR IN VAIN. AMEN.
