"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." - Romans 12 V21
"By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren." - 1 John 3 V16
An eye for an eye or a tooth for a tooth, this is a general attitude we see in our world culture today. Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to love our enemies and not to seek opportunity to strike back. Our Lord displayed the perfect example of love by letting His enemy destroy His physical body even when He could have called a legion of angels, but He stayed on the cross for yours and my sake. In essence, the gospel message is about the love of God for you and me, that He freely offers eternal life to all who believe in His Son Jesus Christ and live in fellowship with Him in every walk of their life. Do you love the Lord and obey His commandment? Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
