Love your enemies.
Jesus expects the impossible.
How about if we just don’t hurt our enemies? Wouldn’t that be good enough?
I grew up in the South, so I don’t have any enemies. Just some people who are hard to be with, bless their heart.
This Sunday at the Gathering Church I teach from this famous passage found in the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:43-48. Jesus is defining what goodness looks like in God’s kingdom which he says is at hand.
He expects that the transformation is so thorough in anyone who receives the kingdom of God that even enemies get loved.
Covered this Sunday:
– How to recognize an enemy.
– Sizes and shapes of enemies.
– How to stop making enemies.
– The Best Act of Love for an enemy.
– What’s so important about loving enemies?
– What happens when we do?
Someone who can’t stand you is going to be really glad that you came to the Gathering Church this Sunday.
