Loving enemies.

So…I was reading the bible the other day and this hit me like a ton of bricks….

“…when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son…” – Romans 5:10

We all know Romans 5:8 just before this verse that talks about God demonstrating his love for us by Christ dying while we were still sinners, but I had never seen the word enemy until now.

Have you ever stopped to think about that?

We were God’s enemies

But he chose to love us. He chose to redeem us. He chose to see us in himself instead of in our sin. And then he gave us Jesus.

Whoa.

It’s hard to love my enemies like that.
