LOVE ENEMIES! “Jesus says, “LOVE YOUR ENEMIES. PRAY FOR THOSE WHO HURT YOU.” [Mt 5:44 IC]{Lk 6:27}. One reason people makeup teachings or doctrines is because it is not always easy to follow Jesus. This teaching of Jesus of “LOVE YOUR ENEMIES” is not what comes natural and Jesus knows it as He states “IF YOU LOVE ONLY THOSE WHO LOVE YOU, WHAT GOOD IS THAT? EVEN SCOUNDRELS DO THAT MUCH” [Mt 5:46 TL]. Jesus calls us to a higher level than the rest of the world. Some people are so anxious to increase the number of people in their church or ministry they will ignore statements like “IF YOU ARE NICE ONLY TO YOUR FRIENDS, THEN YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE. EVEN PEOPLE WITHOUT GOD ARE NICE TO THEIR FRIENDS”  [Mt 5:47 IC].  How do we accomplish this difficult command? For some it may be helpful to remember where Jesus states, “WITH MAN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE, BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE” [Mt 19:26 NI]. Seek God’s help by asking in the name of Jesus and let God show you it can be done.  Do you love everyone? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
