LOVE YOUR ENEMIES
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 215| 3 August 2021| Apostle Gideon C Boateng
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
Matthew 5:44-46 (KJV)
Most people (humans) can love people who are good to them- that is, be genuinely interested in the wellbeing of people who support and favour them. But when it comes to people who are hostile to them, they don't know how to handle it. Often even before thinking, they also become hostile in return for the hostility meted out to them.
This is an open secret many hold, if you are nice to them they will be nice to you but if you oppose and attack them you will never go scot-free. Some are even proud of how quickly they retaliate wrongs done them. About 80% of all the prayers you hear from Christians all over the world are against their enemies at least in Africa. They want God to deal with their enemies on their behalf and will not hear anything on love but becoming Christians we must be different.
We must follow the example of our Master and Lord, how that He walked in love towards all people all the time irrespective of what they did or plotted against Him. His teachings for us on enemies is what we find in the opening verse... 'love your enemies, bless them that curse you. Do good to them that hate you. Can you take this?
Today is that day you must decide to love like your master; to have no enemies. Let no one push you into carnality. Love all people without partiality and be an example of Christ in this generation.

I love the Christ way. I love those who hate me and persecute me. I don't entertain hate for anyone.
