Blessing Our Enemies

This week, our study of Living a Transformed Life according to Romans 12 brings us to one of the most challenging teachings of Jesus (see Matthew 5:43-48) and the apostle Paul.  The circle of our love and concern which naturally begins with our families, and enlarges to include members of our church family, also was extended to offer hospitality and welcome to the stranger.  But now we are told, “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.”  (Romans 12:14).   This does not come naturally to most of us, but it is the Way of Jesus.  We will ponder again why and how we should bless our enemies.
