What? Love My Enemy? Feb 17 Sermon

Getting to Know Jesus—What Jesus Said and Did

Luke 6:27-38

It is hard to be nice to some people. The gospel teaches us that we have an obligation to every person, not just to the people who are nice to us. This isn’t a wish, but it is a command from Christ Himself. He tells us in John 15:12 “Love each other as I have loved you.” In her book “The Hiding Place,” Corrie Ten Boom wrote: “When Jesus tells us to love our enemies, He gives, along with the command, the love itself.” Who is your enemy? Are you willing to pray for them… bless them… and reach out with good deeds to show your love?
