Galatians 3:28 (ESV Strong’s)
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
I read this and it’s a reminder that we are all in this together. I don’t have the right to decide who is in Christ Jesus.
We are all created in his image. That means every single person ever born. I think it’s a huge step when you can get this in your heart. You can’t just say it and believe it you have to persuade your heart. Everybody and I mean everybody is created in his image. That includes the person that flipped you off, that includes the person that broke in your house, that includes the person who hurt you deeply. It’s all encompassing.
Luk 6:27 — Luk 6:31
Love Your Enemies
“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.
