Loving your enemies

Posted by appolus on November 27, 2019

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;(Mat 5:44)

It is maturity when we can love our enemies. It will not come right away nor will it come unless we desire it. For those who do, there is a refining process that is brutal. You will be tested on this. After we have learned to love our enemies, then we can truly love the lost. The love that my heart needs to love my enemies can come from one place only, before the throne. Many things can be replicated and counterfeited but love for our enemies is something so supernatural and obvious to all that it cannot be replicated with any great degree of sophistication. One only has to say the wrong thing and step on the wrong toe and the replication is revealed for what it is.

Pro 14:12  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. The way of God is to love our enemies. Whether those enemies are within the camp or from outside the camp, it makes no difference. In fact, those who make themselves an enemy to you but also call you brother, these are the hardest to love. Yet it does not change our calling or the Word of God. Imagine being Jesus and having to be around Judas. The way that often seems right to a man is to lash out at those who disagree with them. It may feel good in the moment, but it is all flesh and if it goes unchecked it will lead to death. Even if your cause is just, especially if your cause is just , check your flesh to see what spirit you are of. The spirit of man hastens his own death, the Spirit of God infuses life and love. Which Spirit to you desire to follow?
