Love Your Enemy

There is so much evil in the world we live in. People think they can just live their lives how they want and still make it to heaven. I pray that everyone that is living in sin will open their hearts to the Lord. We are all in desperate need for a Savior. It is only through His blood that we can be washed clean. I am grateful that the Lord has given me courage to witness to others. Though some people may not listen to the Lord’s message I have faith that others will. I am not afraid of those that laugh at my beliefs for I know Jesus is alive. I will love them just the same. I pray that the hearts of many will be opened to Jesus. His message is so important. Oh Lord, Let my heart be turned to love those that are hostile towards your message. That I can be an example to those living in the world through your love. It is a blessing to speak of the joy you’ve brought to my life. Give me opportunities to bless others through your Spirit. Jesus said, 1“Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you”. For the love of Christ changes lives.

Thank You Lord for showing us such great kindness. It’s your love that awakens us to good towards others. There is no end to your love. You are true to your Word. When You are with me, there is no anger. My heart is filled with gladness. For You light up my life each day. Your presence brings peace to my heart. When I see someone in need I am drawn to them. My heart feels compassion for them. I want to do all I can to support their needs. When I am confronted with someone that is hostile I seek your counsel. For You always help the situation get better by giving me calm words to speak. I believe lives can be changes through prayer. You’ve answered my prayers so many times. I count on You, Jesus, in all things. Many more lives can be blessed if we just poor out our hearts to You. I know You are there and want the best for us. I trust In You, Lord. You give me hope. You make me a better person. I am born again because of your great love for me. You reign supreme in my heart.

1Luke 6:27-31 (KJV)
27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
