How Can We Embrace Love for Our Enemies and Practice Goodness and Lending?


"But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil." Luke 6:35

This is probably one of the most difficult verses in the word of God for many to follow. "Children of the Highest": i.e., God's children should bear the indelible stamp of His moral character. Since He is loving, gracious, and generous, even to those who are His enemies, we should be like Him The referenced scriptures (Eph. 5:1-2). us, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma." Jesus here, is speaking of those who desire to walk in His footsteps. God loved every one of us and still does. He is not willing that even one will be lost. God the Father loved us so much, regardless of our sins, that He gave His Son Jesus, that we might be saved. If we are His children, then we must love as He loves. My bible tells me that "God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." If we're to be like God, we should try loving each other and showing kindness towards one another. The scripture tells us this "Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another." 1 John 4:11 KJV. We should pursue peace and live Holy, for it's the only way to God. Today, I'm chasing after peace and Holiness, why because I want to live with Jesus, when my work down hear is complete. Finally, the Amplified Bible, expresses the love of God like so, "And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God's love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love." Hebrews 12:14. It does not matter, how the world, so called church folk or anyone else for that matter treats you, pursue love, through faith. for without it, no one will see God.
