Who is Your Enemy?

Who is Your Enemy?

The owners of that car and truck may think geese are their enemies, especially after they had to clean up the mess!

In these dark days, you may regard certain people, officials, politicians, political parties, advocates, or social movements as enemies. You hate, and should hate, murder, abuse, assaults, looting, arson, etc. etc. etc. etc.

We should hate what God hates. And God hates sin.

God’s enemies

Unredeemed people are God’s enemies (Romans 5:10)

Those who love the world, are God’s enemies.

You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4)

God loves His enemies

God hates His enemies, although, in this world, He shows them love.

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners [and His enemies], Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

While we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son. (Romans 5:10)

[God] is kind to ungrateful and evil men. (Luke 6:35)

We are to love our enemies

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. (Matthew 5:44)

Our “enemies” are our mission fields, and are to be loved.

Let’s pray for them and for our country. Individually, we may or may not be called to try to reach them or speak or write about it. But all of us are called to pray.

Praise our Almighty Sovereign God who is working all things according to His holy plan.
