Read Luke 6.
Spotlighted Scripture: Read Luke 6:27-36.
Love your enemies.... we are commanded by God to love God and love others BUT love the ones who hate us, who persecute us, who use us. Really??
When you read this section of scripture, it is very counter culture- right now, we live in a society focused on "ME". If it isn't about "ME" then who cares? To love our enemies we HAVE to rely solely on the almighty power of the Holy Spirit which lives inside us as a believer.
But look at the opportunity we have to share the gospel with others if we choose to love the ones who are hard to love. When the people witness the outpouring of God's love on one's life, they truly get a glimpse into the heavenly realm. This is how we can preach the gospel without words to a lost world.
