Love Your Enemies

January 2, 2022 Speaker: John Bell Series: General

Passage: Luke 6:27–39

2022 New Year’s Message

A cruciform (gospel-centered) definition of love: “Love is willing self-sacrifice for the good of another that does not require reciprocation, or that the person being loved is deserving” (Paul David Tripp).

1: The WHAT:

  • Love your enemies
  • Do good to those who hate you
  • Bless those who curse you
  • Pray for those who mistreat you

2:  HOW Christians love their enemies:

  • Turn the other cheek
  • Give to everyone who asks.
  • Don’t demand back what belongs to you
  • Lend money without expecting repayment
  • Do to others as you would have them do to you.

3: WHY Christians love their enemies:

  • What credit is it to you to love those who love you back?
  • Your reward will be great.
  • You will be children of the Most High.
  • God is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 
  • You are to be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
