MORNINGTIME 3996by Benjamin Munsell on April 25, 2022
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 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; That ye may be the Children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:43-45. (An illustration of a Biblical Concept). It's impotent that we Believers Love everyone, because Jesus says to and the Lord's Blessings rain down on everybody. The greatest gift that ALL people have is the Gift of Life. To be physically born is to have Life. In this life we stand halfway between Heaven and Hell, and we get to taste a little of each, enough to know the difference. The Lord gives air, water, food, and enough "common sense" to Know that there is something more to this life than just being here. We'll call that, "Godly DNA", and there's enough of that to crush any excuses of, "I didn't know there was a God". Since we all come from the same "pot of sin" it's a GOoD thing to share Love, Concern, Mercy and Grace with ALL we come in contact with. There are some people out there that the most Love some can give them is simply pray for them that someday they come to Christ unto Salvation. Others are easier to Love. As you go through this Life, ask the Lord to help you Love the unloved and, at the least, Pray for them. Remember the days when you were lost in Sin, and someone Prayed for you? If you have Christ in you, you WILL have enough Love for the lost to at least Pray for their Salvation AND whatever else the Holy Spirit leads YOU to do. Salvation is a Spiritual Battle, do your best to help Battle FOR them and against their enemy, Satan. You once were them, so if you have Christ, let His Love flow through you to the lost, vile, wicked, sin filled perverts, WHOM CHRIST LOVED AND DIED FOR, that you may Eternally, Be Blessed.
