Luke Chapter 6 Verse 27 : “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
— The Holy Bible (New International Version)
True love is not for the immature. It is easy for us to say ‘do this and do that and God will be happy’ but when it comes to us really loving and forgiving those who offend us, we balk and our true inner colours are revealed.
You see Jesus is matchless when it comes to love. How many people would die on a cross to offer a chance for forgiveness to those who are killing them and say “Father forgive them because they do not even know what they are doing? “Luke 23:34
Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:7-8 NIV
And how do many people choose to repay Him? With cynicism and scorn? With accusations of falsehood and deceit? With doubt and aspersions?
You must be out of your mind to think that Jesus Christ is a fairy tale! Your grandfather’s heroic tales of war and your great-grandfather’s legacies may be fairy tales and the so called tales of the origins of your ‘royal blood’ may be fairy tales but the powerful and effective knowledge of God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ is still saving the souls of humankind to this blessed day!
I hope that you have made the decision to follow Jesus Christ? If not, then do it today! Do not put it off to another ‘convenient’ time. Do not turn your back in God’s love for you.
