Enemies, Jesus, Jesus Manifesto, Jesus Sayings, Matthew 5, Right
I have enemies. Jesus knows that and is clear on it. I have done things to offend others. They don’t forget.
They may not know we are different now because of Jesus. They may know and not care. They are out for blood.
Jesus lets me know it doesn’t matter. It is up to me to make things right. I must make the first move.
That is my job. That is God’s goal for me. The focus is on “making things right”. That is the criteria.
In God’s world, I can’t sit passively by waiting for the other person to make the move.
If an old enemy accosts you. Don’t lose a minute. Make the first move; make things right with him..” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:25-26 The Message)
