Love My Enemy?

Love My Enemy?It’s only by the power of the Holy Spirit that we can forgive.

Love knows no limit to
its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope. It stands
when all else has fallen. How do we get that strong love? The Holy
Spirit is the one who gives it to us. We must look to Him when faced
with the challenge of loving our enemies.

In
Africa I visited a man who was imprisoned and sentenced to death. I
asked, “Have you ever heard of the cross of Jesus Christ, where He
carried the sins of the world—also your sins?”

He nodded.

God’s Paratroopers

Like an elite rescue squad, we have the privilege of partnering with God in ushering to safety those who will perish without Him.


I was once told by a paratroop instructor that there are four important commands given to the parachutists before every jump: (1) attention, (2) stand in the door, (3) look up, and (4) follow me!

Thinking of these commands, I am reminded that Jesus is preparing men and women for the new heaven and the new earth, and He has given His co-workers the same orders that the parachutists receive. The apostle Paul wrote: “Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters” (Eph. 6:5, KJV). Our task is not to give God His instructions. Rather, we must report for duty.
