Love Your Enemies

lovehaters1-2

DAILY VERSE

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Matthew 5:43-45

 

DEVOTION

Loving those who treat us poorly is not a simple act. To us, it almost seems counter to how most would react. But Christ in us gives us the ability to allow Him to love them “through” us. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can overcome the trappings of this world as we react counter to it. Christ’s love can flow through us, drawing those who do not know Him into relationship with Him.

Lord, help us to open our hearts and allow your love to flow freely upon all who we meet.
