Love Your Enemies – Matthew 5:43-47

It’s easy to love those who love us and are like us. In fact, everyone does that. Jesus calls his followers to a higher standard: that we should love even our enemies – not just those who love us, but even those who hate us, or who we might be inclined to hate and disregard. In doing so, we reflect God’s love, who loves with a generous, undeserved love, and loved us by sending his Son to die for us – not when we were his friends, but when we were his enemies.

Keeping Your Word – Matthew 5:33-37

The Sermon on the Mount presents us with a lot of challenging teaching as to how we ought to live our lives as Christians. It reminds us that if we are followers of Christ, we should realize the way we come to him is through being poor in spirit. We realize we come to Christ with nothing to offer. The way we get the kingdom is we realize we don’t deserve it. The way we find salvation is that we must receive it with empty hands. We must be morally and spiritually bankrupt. It is only then can we be filled with his grace and mercy. One sign that this spiritual transformation has happened and is happening in a person’s life is in the way they use their words.
