      Members you are able to set your own theme preference.  At the bottom of the page, you should find an option that says "Theme" click the down arrow and select the theme of your choice. I have found that some themes are causing problems so I have removed several of them.  If there was one you really liked please let me know.

Love Your Enemies

3 posts in this topic

Not really a testimony, but sort of. I think the hardest pill to swallow of all of Jesus' teachings was to love your enemies and do kind to those who spitefully use you. Remember the definition of love by Paul in I Corninthians 13.

 

13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Thank you, Jon!

 

This is true,  it's not easy to love people who wronged us. It's impossible if we try to do that on our own. Only with the help of our heavenly Father can we achieve that. Only through Him can we overcome any evil.

I have just now decided to 'test' my ability to forgive.

 

There was one person who hurt me, tormented me and damaged me to the core of my being.

As I scanned my memories of this person, I realized I carried no burden of malice.

 

I never set out to forgive this person.

 

God removed the corrosive weight of justifiable hatred and holds me upright. I celebrate my freedom.

 

Dear Naomi, I pray that your wounds are healed and any residue of painful anger is cleared from your  aspect. I agree with you that I shall never tire of reading or hearing God's Word.
