      Christians Love Their Enemies     MATTHEW 5:44 NKJ 44 "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, No other belief system teaches such an idea! Only followers of Jesus preach this. This idea will change the world! In fact, it is the only one that will change it as it needs to be changed. But only those who are connected to God, the source of Love, are fully capable of loving their enemies. What does it mean to love our enemies? To understand this we need to have a definition. To love someone means to desire the best for them and to work toward that end. Does it mean to let our enemies do whatever they will to us? No, not necessarily. Remember our definition of loving someone is desiring and working toward what will be best for them. Allowing someone to do something not in their best interest is not love, but apathy. It means you don't really care. Stopping someone, even with force, from doing something they will later regret can be an act of love. Allowing an enemy to destroy your family, instead of protecting and defending them, certainly cannot be considered an act of love. But you can protect your loved ones, then later pray for the salvation and healing of the attacker, instead of hating the attacker and hoping they go to hell. ROMANS 12:19 NIV 19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. Revenge is the way of the world. Forgiveness and mercy is God's way. God asks us to love people as He loves us (John 15:12). God's way will turn enemies into friends. ROMANS 5:5b NKJ 5 the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. As true believers in Jesus, we have the love of God in our hearts. But we must allow that love to control our actions. The choice is ours. It is not automatic. God's children have the ability to choose to love. It's actually our inner nature as Christians to show love. 1 JOHN 4:8 NKJ 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. If you don't realize that God loves everyone, that He is interested in, and working toward, the best for everyone -- then you don't know God. ROMANS 12:14,20-21 NKJ 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 20 Therefore "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head." 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. This may not be easy, but with God's love inside you and with God helping you -- you can do it. SAY THIS: God wants me to show love to absolutely everyone.

    July 26 The Basis for Discernment Hebrews 4:12-13 Since spiritual discernment is the ability to see life from God's perspective, it requires that we know how He thinks and acts. The Bible is His unchanging, infallible revelation of Himself. However, the Lord doesn't simply give us a list of facts about His character and ways. All throughout the pages of Scripture, He illustrates who He is and how He operates. Although the Bible is ancient, it's not a dead book. It's alive and as fresh as if He were speaking directly to you. The stories may have taken place centuries ago, but the principles and applications are current and relevant. It's our instruction book about how to live. Guidance for decisions and discernment about situations are found from Genesis to Revelation. God's Word is active and piercing. The words don't simply sit on the page. They penetrate our hearts and judge our thoughts and motives. This convicting quality is why some people don't like to read the Bible. But self-discernment is essential if we don't want to keep making the same mistakes over and over again. Some Christians live on a surface level, never understanding why they react to situations the way they do. But if we'll approach the Word of God with an open spirit, it will bring to light our hidden motives and reveal unrecognized sins.   Spiritual discernment involves seeing not just our circumstances but also ourselves from God's perspective. Have you learned to embrace the piercing sword of Scripture, or have you avoided doing so because it makes you uncomfortable? Remember, God's Word cuts only so that it can heal.

    The End of Life By Billy Graham   •   July 26   •   Topics: Death Share1K+ Tweet Home Daily Devotion The End of Life . . . willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.—2 Corinthians 5:8 A little boy was riding alone on a train on a hot day when the travelers were extremely uncomfortable; and the scenery was not too interesting as they passed through the desert of Arizona. A lady sitting beside the boy asked him, “Are you tired of the long ride?” The little boy smiled and said, “I’m a little tired, but I don’t mind it much. You see, my father is going to meet me when I get to Los Angeles.” Sometimes we get a little tired of the burdens of life, but it is exhilarating to know that Jesus Christ will meet us at the end of life’s journey. The joy of being with Him forever is beyond the ability of any writer to describe. Read 5 Answers from Billy Graham on Heaven. Prayer for the day To think You will be waiting for me at the end of this earthly journey! I am filled with unspeakable joy, Lord Jesus.

    Psalm 86:7 (WEB)In the day of my trouble I will call on you, for you will answer me. Promise #207: When problems arise, call to Me and I will answer you. Jesus told us that in the world, we would have trouble. He went on to encourage us that we could be cheerful because He had overcome the world. In this Psalm, David is calling out to God to help him. David is aware of the many promises that God made to Israel and was confident that when trouble came, God would answer him. Sometimes I think that God is there for the really big problems, but He is leaving me to my own resources for the little problems that pop up in every day life. I believe that God is ready, willing and able to help me in whatever problems I face today. Big or small. He promised to be a Father to me (2 Corinthians 6:18) and fathers are there for their children all the time. Whatever trouble you might face today, be encouraged in knowing that when problems do arise, you can call out to your Heavenly Father and He will answer you.

    Forward Email to a Friend Monday, July 24 Fixing Our Thoughts Fix your thoughts on Jesus…. Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus…. Hebrews 3:1, 12:1-2 (NIV)  Recommended ReadingHebrews 11:32-40 One day the church musician, Lowell Mason, met an exhausted man on the street. It was Ray Palmer, 24, who had been working a retail job while attending classes at Yale, teaching at a girl’s school, and preparing for future ministry. Mason asked Palmer to take on another task—writing hymn lyrics. Palmer, too tired to produce anything new, pulled from his billfold a little poem he had written two years earlier. It was a personal prayer for renewed zeal and courage, which he had written one night when very low. Lowell Mason composed music for the words, giving us the great hymn, “My Faith Looks Up to Thee.” When circumstances get us down, we need to lift our eyes to Jesus in faith and fix our thoughts on Him. The challenge of the Christian life isn’t how to avoid fatigue and failure. It’s learning to move forward with faith, looking up to the Lord and His sovereign Word: “My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior Divine! / Now hear me while I pray; take all my guilt away; O let me from this day be wholly Thine!”May Thy rich grace impart strength to my fainting heart, my zeal inspire. / As Thou hast died for me, O may my love for Thee / Pure, warm, and changeless be, a living fire!Ray Palmer

    Once again, I have had several instances of a recurring theme show up, getting my attention. In this case it revolves around a shoe. You see, ever since I broke my leg, the time I spent recovering and healing, I found myself truly diving into Gods word for solace and comfort. I also spent a great deal of time painting, (although the paint was digital, just me and my iPad) I was playing around one day and just happened to start a free-form painting, something that looked like a woman's high heel shoe emerged, so I went with it. It came out fantastic, it pleased me so much, that it became the first in a series of shoes. I thought later on about it that perhaps it was because I was injured and desirous of being able to return to such attire (which seemed really far off, if ever at all).LOLRolling ahead, I've recovered, but keep painting my fancy shoes amongst other works of art. Incidentally, over over the last few weeks, I've been drawn to several passages in the Bible, all of which revolve around a shoe or shoes. I watched the movie, the Story of Ruth from the Bible, (Ruth 4:7) who became the wife of Boaz, (the Great Grandparents of David) I read about Moses being instructed to remove his shoes, as he was standing on Holy ground (Exodus 3:5) and the same thing for Joshua (Joshua 5: 14-15). Further research uncovered yet other mention of shoes, such as (Amos 2:6) which refers to Joseph, who was sold by his brothers into slavery! (which speaks to the injustices of this world, those who sit in high places who have dominion and power, supposing to be in good standing, who are not)Every account mentioned above, has different meanings, different connotations attached, one meant concession (forfeiting their possession or rights thereto) another meant humbleness, in standing before God and yet another stood for symbolism of an injustice (where money, possession and power were favored over the kinship of blood and brotherhood). So what is the underlying unifying theme to all of this. It is obedience, obtaining it, remaining in it or the lack of it!I think of a baby, walking around with no shoes, barefoot and it conjures up thoughts of trust, being carefree and cared for. God wants us in spirit to be barefoot to Him, like a baby. We see the loss of a shoe, as symbolic, this applies to anything you might have lost in your life; if it's yours and meant for you, worn by you, what use is it to anyone else?! In all honesty those that take from others will find that their spoils are as useful as one shoe, in other words useless! That which is taken from us wrongfully, will surely have to be returned or counted to us for restitution. Then we have the conscious and intentional forfeit, isn't that a picture of dying to this world for the gain of Christ Jesus?! Having the Lord dwell within us, shouldn't we allow Him to fill our shoes? To order our footsteps and keep us on that path?! Blessed are the feet of those who spread the Gospel! Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

    God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him. John Wesley

More Like You More like you, Jesus, more like you Fill my heart with your desire To make me more like you More like you, Jesus, more like you Touch my lips with Holy fire And make me more like you Lord you are my mercy Lord you are my grace All my deepest sins Have forever been erased Draw me in your presence Lead me in your ways I long to bring you glory In righteousness and praise Lord you are compassion And never ending love For you have redeemed me By your priceless blood Create in me a clean heart A spirit that is new The joy of my salvation Is only found in you!

    God Gives His Children (Believers) Two Rules for a Happy Marriage:   22 Wives should submit to their husbands as they do to the Lord; 23 because the husband is head of the wife, just as the Messiah, as head of the Messianic Community, is himself the one who keeps the body safe. 24 Just as the Messianic Community submits to the Messiah, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.           Ephesians 5:22-24 CJB God knows men. Men need to feel responsible and supreme! Wives do not challenge your husband’s decision making. They will become bossy and unresponsive, cold and aloof. Don’t challenge his daily decisions. For example: “honey don’t wear that shirt, or don’t wear those pants, shoes, etc..”   25 As for husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the Messianic Community, indeed, gave himself up on its behalf, 26 in order to set it apart for God, making it clean through immersion in the mikveh, so to speak, 27 in order to present the Messianic Community to himself as a bride to be proud of, without a spot, wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without defect. 28 This is how husbands ought to love their wives — like their own bodies; for the man who loves his wife is loving himself. 29 Why, no one ever hated his own flesh! On the contrary, he feeds it well and takes care of it, just as the Messiah does the Messianic Community, 30 because we are parts of his Body. 31 “Therefore a man will leave his father and mother and remain with his wife, and the two will become one.”
