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. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to be dominated by His love always in life. 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 forever.
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 ambition. 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. In fact, it is absolutely God’s will for a Christian to constantly live a life of forgiveness by leaving vengeance for Him. But he should be wise as serpent and be fully conscious in the Spirit forever.
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 says in John 13:35 thus, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Therefore, the hallmark of discipleship is indeed embedded in love and obedience to Jesus Christ’s teachings. Evil cannot overcome evil and hatred can never overcome hatred in life. It is only good that can overcome evil and love that can overcome hatred. A Christian was born to dominate through God’s love in life forever.
Daily Tip: You were born to dominate through God’s love because love and obedience to Jesus Christ’s teachings are the hallmark of a Christian forever. 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).
