LOVE YOUR ENEMIES
Hebrews 12:14,15/Luke 6:27-36

Canadian born, sixty-nine year old Sherman Moon waited patiently for his daughters to arrive. Since having his legs amputated, Sherman’s only care came from his daughters, Stephanie and Charmagne. After his tragic automobile accident, the two sisters had gone out of their way to care for him, and tenderly watched over Sherman each day.

At last the girls arrived. They went into the kitchen to prepare a meal for their father, but immediately began to argue. Their raised voices were easy for Sherman to hear. Bound to his wheel chair, he felt helpless as he heard them yelling at one another. Then two shots were fired, and Stephanie, who had seriously wounded her sister in the stomach, ran out of the house.

This is a case of directional love. The girls knew how to love, but only in one direction. Even though they loved their father very much, they didn’t seem to love each other. In fact, with the same intensity that they cared for their father, their love toward each other had turned to hate. The day came when that hatred turned into violence.

Jesus said something that can be hard for us to accept. It could be an indictment to some of us. "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." (John 13:35) The opposite of this would be: "By this all men will know that you ARE NOT my disciples, in that you HATE one another."

We all love certain people. It's hard to imagine a person who does not love his or her mother. But we cannot use directional and limited love to prove our Christianity. The love of a true Christian is not tunnel love. It reaches out to everyone. Furthermore, true Christian love does not have enemies.

We must not allow ourselves to be slaves of embittered hearts. If we have failed in this, and have even one enemy, we need to repent and ask God to forgive us. Then we must go to the person we hate or resent and ask for their forgiveness. Only when we have cleared our hearts of all unforgiveness, will we be truly free.

The whole world wants peace. But there will be no peace until the individuals of the world have made peace with God and among themselves. Let's make peace today with everyone we know so that we can be completely free.
