Text: Matthew 5.43-48
When [Jesus] said, “I tell you, love your enemies,’ he must have startled his audience, for he was saying something that probably never before had been said so succinctly, positively, and forcefully. William Hendrikson, The Gospel of Matthew, p.313
In whatever relationships we have, especially with those who’ve caused us harm, God demands we prayerfully love. It is from a Spirit-empowered decision we can love our enemies and pray for their well-being. Our prayer list must include those who’ve hurt us.
Today, make sure your prayer list includes your enemies, and specifically—by name—pray for God’s best in their life.
