Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.”  It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power.  And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals.  Just keep being friendly to that person.  Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long.  Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning.  They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them.  And by the power of your love they will break down under the load.  That’s love, you see.  It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love.  There’s something about love that builds up and is creative.  There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive.  So love your enemies.

When the night is at its darkest,
When the wind is at its coldest,
When I am feeling most alone and afraid,
I remember that Christ is risen!
And I am comforted
In the light,
By the warmth,
Through the intimacy,
Of my faith.
Happy Easter to all!!

25  And one day an authority on the law stood up to put Jesus to the test. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to receive eternal life?”
26  “What is written in the Law?” Jesus replied.  “How do you understand it?” 27  He answered, ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.  Love him with all your strength and with all your mind.’  And, ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ ”  28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied.  “Do that, and you will live.

If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.

Jesus was not sent here to teach the people to build magnificent churches and temples amidst the cold wretched huts and dismal hovels.  …He came to make the human heart a temple, and the soul an altar, and the mind a priest.
