BE DOMINATED BY GOD’S LOVE!
You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you (Matthew 5:43-44).
The philosophy of the world and the society encourage us to love our friends and hate our enemies. But in our opening text, Jesus Christ teaches otherwise. He said vividly love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. Although, this is a hard teaching but it is the truth and the fact from the lips of the Master and Lord of our lives. Love, of course has a greater force of intensity than hatred and unforgiving spirit.
It is unfortunate and amazement that many Christians and churches these days are preaching contrary to what Jesus Christ taught us in the Scriptures. That is why the world is getting more corrupt and wicked because of our selfish ambitions. The real enemy of man is not human but spirit (Ephesians 6:12); therefore, do not see people around you as your enemies in life. But be wise and be fully conscious in the Spirit. A Christian that lives in love is always victorious and more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37).
As a Christian, for you to be fully conscious in the Spirit, you must be conscious of God’s love. That is the reason why Jesus Christ said in John 13:35, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Evil cannot overcome evil and hatred can never overcome hatred. It is only good that can overcome evil and love that can overcome hatred. You were born to dominate through love. Therefore, every Christian is expected to live in love and be one with God who is our Heavenly Father (1 John 4:7-8).
Daily Tip: You were born to dominate through love because love is the hallmark of a Christian. Shalom!
Golden Text: Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head (Romans 12:20).
