18 Jun Matthew 5:44

44 “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…”    

Do you think being a Christian is easy? Do you think people were stunned by Jesus’ teaching? Living a Christian life can be hard at times. Jesus tells us to love our enemies. That is hard. Jesus tells us to pray for people who treat us poorly because of our faith. Jesus’ disciples and the crowd were listening pretty closely to His teaching that day. Are you listening closely to what God’s Word is teaching you? Do you have an enemy you need to love? Who do you need to pray for today?
