Love your enemies

Today’s command from Jesus is radical and revolutionary: ‘Love your enemies’ (Luke 6:27).

The only hope for loving our enemy is to be a new creation in Christ Jesus. And the only hope of being a new creation in Christ Jesus is being reconciled to God through the death of his Son (2 Cor 5:17–18).

The shocking message of Christianity is that God loved us when we were his enemy by sacrificing his Son on the Cross to reconcile us to him (Rom 5:10).

For most that is too offensive to accept. For the Christian accepting this is our only hope of salvation, and is how we live this radical love Jesus calls us to.

In Christ Jesus, Tory Cayzer
