Loving Enemies

As we watch the current events in the news, we see all kinds of chaos and violence. We see not only the threats of other nations but also individuals engaging in violence against each other. Sadly, there is a lot of hate in the name of religion. But in the following verse, we see God’s love and grace for the people He created. The amazing truth is that while we were His enemies, He died for us. If Jesus did this for us while we were His enemies, aren’t we obligated to treat His enemies with the same love and compassion? But instead, in taking political stances – correct though they may be – we slander and strike out against the enemies of God’s truth. This is not God’s way of dealing with His opposition. We serve God well when we follow His example.

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8 ✝🙏

I read this today and felt it was important to share.
