“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.” (Luke 6:27-NKJV)
Are you listening?
Abba, Father, help me to:
Love my enemies
Bless those that curse me
Do good for those that hate me
Pray for those that spitefully use me and persecute me
This is God’s command to us.
I love the Message version of this Scripture:
“To you who are ready for the truth, I say this: Love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer for that person.” (Luke 6:27-28 MSG)
This is hard to do in the natural. Thankfully, we don't do it alone! God has equipped us to love in the most challenging of situations.
The key – we do it through the love God has poured out to us through His Holy Spirit:
"For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." (Romans 5:5 NLT)
