In Matthew 5:43-45, our Lord Yahushua spoke these words to us;
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you this: Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you. In this way you show that you are children of your Father in heaven. He makes his sun rise on people whether they are good or evil. He lets rain fall on them whether they are just or unjust.”
By Loving And Praying For Our Enemies We Overcome Evil
By telling us not to retaliate, Yahushua keeps us from taking the law into our own hands. By loving and praying for our enemies, we can overcome evil with good.
“Forgive Them Father For They Know Not What They Are Doing”
In Luke 23:34, Yahushua spoke these words to His Heavenly Father;
“Father, forgive them. They don’t know what they are doing.” Meanwhile, the soldiers divided His clothes among themselves by throwing dice.
Sometimes we find it so difficult to forgive others of even the smallest offense, but Yahushua, who was being nailed to the cross by the Roman soldiers, while all His enemies stood there mocking and laughing at Him, asked His Father to forgive them.
Yahushua Not Only Forgave His Enemies, He Died For Them
If you love and pray for your enemies just as Yahushua did, then you will truly demonstrate that you not only believe in what He has commanded you to do, but that you also truly belong to Him.
If You Want God To Forgive You, Then You Must Forgive Others
Finally Yahushua Tells Us This;
“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But, if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins (Matthew 6:14-15),
