Love, bless and pray for your enemies

Monday, July 15, 2013

Love, bless and pray for your enemies. Huh? Jesus said, "but I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you; that you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust ~ Matthew 5:44



It is easy to love, bless and pray for those who have affection for us. But Jesus commands us to love bless and pray for those that despitefully use us or persecute us.

If we really want to live out the fruits of the spirit–love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, etc.–then our lives must be all about loving blessing and praying for  those who we least "deserve" it.

But let's be honest to love, bless and pray your enemies is one of the hardest things to do.

We live in a world that tells us to hold our grudges, but we’re called to display Christ’s way.

Still your relationship with God comes first. You need to allow your life to be submitted to God. You need to empty yourself to be used as vessels, vessels of His love.

Love, bless and pray

Christianity is all about grace i.e. treating others, not as they deserve, but as God treats them, with loving-kindness and mercy. Sincere love, blessings and prayers are the mark of true application of Christianity. 

Our love for others, even those who hurt and despitefully use us, must be marked by the same kindness and mercy which God has shown to us.

It's only the cross of Jesus Christ that can free us from the "slavery" of hatred, revenge, and resentment and gives us the courage to return evil with good.  Instead of plotting vengeance or nursing a grudge that gradually eats you alive – Look to God!

Until you love, bless and pray for your enemies, you’re playing in the devil's territory and you will be forever his slave.

But Christ calls you to FREEDOM.

Replace the spirit of retaliation with LOVE, BLESSINGS AND PRAYERS for those that hurt and despitefully use you.

When you love, bless and pray for your enemies you become  like Christ who ‘died while  for you while you were still still a sinner".
