Genesis 36-38, John 15
It is so hard to love people who have wronged you, but we are made in the image of God. Love your enemies and love one another. Thank you, Jesus for loving us.
Jesus can understand when people hurt us or harm us even though we brought them good. Jesus said they hated me without a cause. A lot of people may not like you especially if you follow the Lord instead of the world, but you need to stay strong and have that endurance to keep going because with the Lord we win
Love His promise. Abide w/me and I with you!! With all the crazieness rt now, what comfort!!
I don’t think Judah is a man I would want to spend much time with. He betrayed his brother and as much as murdered his daughter in law too (hypocritically punishing her to death for the same sin he committed). Yet God choose Judah to carry the line of David and ultimately Jesus. Rev. 5:5. Aren’t I just like Judah? Hypocritical? Jealous? Self-seeking? Yep. Perhaps God can still weave his purposes into my life.
““This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.”
John 15:12-14 ESV
As a very self-centered person and introvert this is so difficult for me. I love people but I don’t like people… it’s very hard to love people especially when you don’t like them. When I ask myself in my heart, do I love my Christian brothers and sisters honestly? Do I sincerely love The souls that the Lord has given as our friends and companions? Do I love them unconditionally or just when it suits me? Do I love them wholeheartedly or only when I’m in the mood? Could I invite anyone of you here on this social media outlet into my my home without any judgment or criticism and love you like Jesus loved us? Maybe for a little while but then when I think that your time is up I want you to get out of my house. Would I inconvenience myself for the needs and comfort of a stranger?
No longer servants but friends. Thank you Jesus – no longer bound but free
