Love your enemies

““But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.”‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:27-28‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The Lord has called all of us who follow Him to walk in His love. This includes loving our enemies. This is very hard because personally when someone comes after me I desire to go after them. I have never been one to step away from a fight but when we follow Jesus Christ we are no longer operating according to our sinful nature, we operate according to the leading of the Holy Spirit. 

The Lord demonstrated this principle to us when He hung upon the cross. He could have called legions upon legion of angels to come against those who stood against Him. But instead His prayer was Father forgive them for they know not what they do. 

When we have people that come against us our prayer must be that they be forgiven. Many people when they wrong others are blinded by the enemy. Our battle is not against flesh and blood. We are simply called to be a people of His love. As we abide in Him this will become a reality in our lives.
