Gotta Love 'em
If we’re going to follow Jesus then we have to love everyone, even our enemies!
Love = _to be committed to the other person’s good
*This can only be done through the supernatural strength of the Holy Spirit!
Why must we Love? Because God has been kind & merciful to us! verses 35-36
Why must we Love? Verse 31 ‘Do to others as you would have them do to you.’ (the Golden Rule)
How are we to apply this? Don’t return evil for evil; do good to those who mistreat you; Give to those who ask you; If someone takes from you, do not demand it back! – then we will be acting as sons & daughters of the Most High God.
