Love my enemies?

img_2406Is that even possible? If you have an enemy, it’s very much natural to think not so nice things about them. You would want to hurt them back, return the “favor”, pray for sickness, or simply ignore then and consider them to be inexistent.

But loving them instead? No way! That’s what a normal human being would react when someone betrays, hurts or did something bad to them. Jesus is “unnatural”, though.

It is very much unnatural to love our enemies. But with God, it is possible. Only because of Jesus living in us, empowering us to do the impossible can we love our enemy. And even that is a process in itself. It’s a struggle. It’s a “debate”.

Not normal. But possible. Only with God.
