Mountain Series 30
The following comment is inspiried by Matthew 5:43-45," that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good,and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." But I say to you,says Jesus, bless those who curse you,do good to those who hate you,and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. After I finished reading these verses, I stop and tried to imagine the facial imperssion of the disciples and all those who sat under our great teacher and savior when he said this to them. who can bless those who cures them,do good to those who hate,and, I stress and,pray for those who spitefully use them. Then it came to me Jesus could and did do this,not by human nature, but rather through the Father who was in him and shine through him. They look upon Jesus as God was shining on them. Shining on their weakness,their hurts and wounds,their sinful state,the hate that may or may not been in their hearts. Just like God shined in hIs on begotten Son on that day, Jesus,his mind,his standards can and should shine through us on good and evil,just and unjust. It is the power of our Sonship or kinship that we have with the Father that was given to us through Jesus Christ that we can love,pray,forgive all who have and will mistreat or hate us. Because it is the will of our Father's and His will we will do,and ask for grace and love to do it in the name of the Father, the Son, and Holy Spirit.
