Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” What if I don’t want to?
Here is the message from Sunday evening, entitled “The Way I Don’t Want to Live.”
On Friday, news flooded the world of another horrific terrorist attack–this time in Paris. As I turned my attention over the weekend to prepare the message for our evening service at the church, I opened the preaching schedule that we laid out nearly 3 months ago.
We‘ve been walking through the Gospel of Luke. Sunday’s text was Luke 6:27-38, a part of Jesus’ “Sermon on the Plain.” “Love your enemies….”
I humbly hope and pray that this message might be helpful as we navigate the tensions of following Jesus in the midst of such horrific violence.
