So states Christ in Luke 6:27.
Helen Berhane who was imprisoned and tortured for her faith in Eritrea shares this exhortation.
The love of God shed abroad in our hearts enables us to do what is otherwise humanly impossible-to love our enemies.
” Every good gift that comes to us comes as a gift from our amazing Father in heaven. Sharing in the sufferings of Christ always brings us deeper into fellowship with Jesus-and for this gift we must be thankful.”
“Here is a great mystery: when we respond to hatred with the love of God , it sets us free!”
Can you guess what we are freed from? Free from slavery to fear, revenge and hatred.
” It enables us to be free even when in prison.”
“God so loved the world that he sent his son into the world to die for those who would hate him, harm him and ultimately put him to death.” AMAZING!
” There may be some who chose to hate me and harm me because I am a Christian-but God’s love complels me to do them good.”
AMAZING POWER OF GRACE!
