How do y'all interpret Christ's exhortation to love your enemies?
In a study I was doing on the sermon on the mount I learrned alot about not reacting the way you would naturally react.
Matt.5:9-12 talk about being blessed when we are persecuted for righteousness, and our faith in him. If we react like the rest of the world how can we be blessed. it is when we react in the like manner of Christ dying on the cross that we are blessed.
Our enemies Should not hate us because we treat them with evil, they should hate us because they are enemies of the God whom we worship.
