Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/11-9-13
[ Love for Enemies ] “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
We all have enemies for some reason or another. But, Jesus said to love our enemies and pray for them. Why does He say that? Because in; Romans 12:19-21 His word says, 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[a] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[b] 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Jesus wants us to love, to love like He loves us, to love others no matter the enemy but to pray over the enemy, our enemies. Jesus prayed for all and for all to come to repentance, when the time is right just like in Romans, He says it is mine to avenge He will repay. Love BettyB…So Let’s Pray:
