Love Your Enemies

If circumstances arouse your indignation, do not be led astray. Not one of us is deserving of God’s compassion, yet we are forgiven. Christ on the cross prayed for his enemies; so did Stephen, the first Christian martyr. As God loves you so too should you love your enemies, forgiving them for their transgressions, giving glory to God for his kindness that you now ought to extend to others. He who can obey this precept is a transformed man. Love your enemies.

Jesus is worthy isn't He? Worthy of our love and praise. And yes, we ought to live like Him. He loved his enemies, we don't have an excuse not to do the same. Love your posts. Keep them coming!
