40 DAYS OF PRAYER FOR OUR NATION – DAY 16 10/09/2020

LOVING OUR ENEMIES AND DOING GOOD TO THOSE WHO PERSECUTE US:

SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:43-45 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

45  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

THOUGHT: Today, I would like to hear from you on the topic of today. Jesus says it all in this statement about how to treat people who are negative and hostile towards us. I summarize it: “LOVING… BLESSING… DOING GOOD… AND PRAYING FOR…”

Please go to http://www.thhmi.com and find today’s article and post your response, comment, observation or question regarding Jesus’ instructions in Matthew 5:43-45.

Send me a personal message if you need to.

His instructions are straightforward but we clearly see in our families, at our jobs, in our churches, in our halls of congress and around our nation, that we are having trouble obeying His command to love, bless, and do good.

Let’s talk about “LOVING… BLESSING… DOING GOOD… AND PRAYING FOR…”:

Have you implemented these words? If so explain.

Have you had trouble implementing these words? Explain in general terms.

How have you overcome and submitted to Jesus and His ‘ Word in this area?

Do you have any questions or comments about “LOVING… BLESSING… DOING GOOD… AND PRAYING FOR…” those who hate you and persecute you?

Jesus said that offense would come, so it is common to go through things with each other. Do you need help?

PRAYER: LORD, I surrender my emotions, my hurts and my pains in my relationships. LORD, it is my desire to walk after Your instruction and right now I choose to do so.

I forgive _________ for how he/she has treated me. I purpose to love, bless, do good and pray for him/her.

I ask Your forgiveness for harboring resentment. Empower me with the freedom to love, bless, do good and pray for others, In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
