LOVE MY ENEMY??!!

Rose Bud Christian Stock PhotosBut I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to
them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute
you”. Matthew 5:44

 

 

February 14th Valentine’s Day, this is one day that  most us will consider or at least think about someone besides ourselves.

However I would like challenge you to go a step further and follow the lord’s commandment, concerning those who are not close to our hearts, or those who some might characterize as enemies. Those who don’t have your best interest
at heart and who are less concerned with your well being. Not only is this an excellent opportunity to pray for them but why not take this time to forgive  them. Make an attempt to reach out to them, or do something good for them. Find  a way to be kind to them, who by man’s standards,  don’t deserve it. God loved  us when we didn’t deserve it.

Love your enemies

THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

Red Berries Christian Stock Images LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF!

Why is that so difficult for so many of us today?  The sad truth is a lot of people

have never learned to love themselves.

Most people first learn to love from our parents or other family members.

Some of us have turned to other sources, because we were neglected, abused,

mistreated, or felt betrayed but loved ones or those closest to us.

Some of us have experienced feelings of guilt, shame, condemnation and

have low self esteem as a result.

We simply have never been made to feel valued or loved by others.

The good news is God loves us all just as we are! We must accept his

unconditional love and let go of the hurt, pain, scars and wounds of our

past experiences and allow the healing power of God to restore us.

We must believe we are precious in sight, the apple of his eye. We must

learn to love ourselves as God does, unconditionally. Then we will be willing

and able to love our neighbors, as ourselves.

A GREATER LOVE

Cross Christian Stock Images“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friend.” John 15:13

Wow, let’s think about that for a moment, not only is this the
ultimate sacrifice but it is also real love being demonstrated!

While so many people will be trying this week to find the right words or ways to say I love you. We can follow the example of Christ, who gave the greatest example of love not in words but in demonstration.

Love is after all an action word. Let us focus on demonstrating real love. We can begin by laying down our life for a friend or someone in need,of course not literally but we can put someone else’s needs above our own. We can give of ourselves, our time, our talents, our resources, our substance to help someone in need. We can do it with a pure  heart, expecting nothing in return. Find a way to love someone this week.

GOD’S LOVE = REAL LOVE

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son …” John 3:16

Cross Christian Stock ImagesDuring the next few days, most of the world will become pre-occupied with finding ways to express their love. Some will do that by purchasing gifts, such as flowers, candy, jewelry and other personal items, some will find other creative ways to express how they feel a about someone special.

What is real love? REAL LOVE is not based on our feelings or emotions. REAL LOVE is unconditional. The greatest example of unconditional love came from our Heavenly father, his love for all mankind was so great,that He gave His only son to be a sacrifice. To lay down His life for all mankind, while we were yet living in sin with no thoughts towards God. God gave us the greatest gift of all, salvation. That is REAL LOVE!
