Why Love Your Enemies?
Published on 02/03/2017
Just a Minute! - Bob Christopher Jesus tells you and me to love our enemies. Here is the reason — One day that enemy could become your brother or sister in Christ. The early Jewish Christians saw this first hand. Because of their culture, they weren’t very fond of the Gentiles. As a matter of fact, these groups despised each other. But that wasn’t the heart of God. He extended his grace first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. Out of these two groups, he formed the church where Jew and Gentile have become one in Christ. So today, be patient and kind to those you perceive as enemies. It may be the very thing that God uses to extend his grace and welcome them into his family as your brother or sister in Christ.
