“Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them.” Romans 12:14 NLT
Where is this happening in the church today? I’m looking... I have been deeply saddened by the amount of hateful and judgmental things people are saying in the church. Christians, who are called to love one another the way Jesus loves them, to go the extra mile, to turn the other cheek, to love their enemy and pray for those who do them harm.
Wake up, church! Jesus gave us a beautiful example to follow in the way He treated Judas. He loved him and ministered to him until the end - and you know that Jesus knew all along that there was evil in Judas’s heart, but he still loved him. I’m not saying that we should all go have dinner with our enemies - but let’s at least pray for them and bless them. #prayforyourenemies #blessthosewhopersecuteyou #BEthechurch #christianliving #discipleship #theywillknowusbyourlove #goodgoodfather #childofgod #shalom #onespiritonechurch #dailydevotional
