Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
“He who says he loves God and hates his brother is a liar.”
Matthew 5:43-44 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
Abba, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises You. Thank You, Lord of Lords, for continuing to bless us. Bless Your faithfulness and lovingkindness. Where would we be without You? Please place before us a clear path and help our eyes to focus on You. Holy Spirit, guide our hearts and soften them so we can give our Father the glory as we love all people in name of Jesus. Remove all bitterness and hate in our lives. Guide us in truth and love and make known to us the pain behind the behavior that is sinful in our brothers. Grant us the words and humility to be a help even when we would judge otherwise. Remind us that You alone are judge. In Jesus’ name, amen.
