Jesus tells us to love our enemies:
What we, in this world value, often times Jesus trashes, or is against, and often times what we trash, Jesus values, or what we say we value, which we may say we value because we know Jesus would value it, but we may not really value it. Come on now, God knows our heart’s, and whether or not you believe it, the Bible say’s that “on that day, when accordingly to my gospel , God judges the secrets of men, by Christ Jesus” (Romans 2:16). So it would be wise for us to realize this, now that no one can or will escape Judgement-day. This brings me to my main-point of this post: have we not just loved our brothers, or been kind to our dear one’s who treat us with respect or love? We aren’t called to just love those who love us. The Bible is quite clear about how we are to treat other’s, and it’s with nothing but love. Luke 6:29 say’s that if someone slaps us on one cheek, and to offer a slap on the other cheek. To make sure you are reading this part of scripture correctly, this doesn’t mean to not do anything and not say anything, this actually means to OFFER to your enemy, another slap on the face. Other scripture quote’s that support this famous sermon from Jesus include: 1 John 4:7 which reminds us that whoever knows God, knows love. Proverbs 10:12 says that hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses. This may be hard to do, but if we call ourselves Christian’s, than we must truly live as though we are truly redeemed by the blood of Christ.
