Did you know that sin is a violent ordeal for a soul to endure? Yes, it is a traumatic experience because it is designed to kill the body and soul. A decision is made and then POW, we are in decades of cycle that kill all that we are and all that we will ever be. Our response to sin is important. Yes, for a believer, we rebuke and correct, but for those who don’t know Christ, there is a care that must be had. God wants our enemies to be our footstool so that through their servanthood they are purified through our faith and belief in Him. That is why we must learn to LOVE OUR ENEMIES! If you want to change the world, forgive them and bless them with the love of Christ. Jesus is the best gift that anyone could ever receive. Jesus said in Luke 5:32: “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance”.
We must learn the art of love, by not just going to those who already know Him, but to those who need answers. Yes, we sit with them. That is okay! …..just don’t be a partaker of sin. Lead them into who Christ is in the most loving way. Show them that His love is greater than the temporal effects of the cigarette or the bottle. All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, but as believers we understand grace, His blood, redemption, and forgiveness of sins. The unbelieving must hear this good news, that there is a deliverer and a Savior that can rescue their entire existence. They can be delivered from curses. There is a new and living way that will guarantee their eternal life. Your enemies need to know that God loves them. Innately, everybody is searching for the Big Guy upstairs. The questions arise: “Who am I? What am I? Why am I here? Shall I remain here?” These are all questions that the Father wants to answer for all His children because He is a Father. Let’s share the great love of the Father to the world. Let’s talk about Jesus, who is GOOD NEWS to every broken son, that you are here on purpose and for a purpose! Tell them that God is at the other end waiting with open arms. God will fix it all!
HEU: The world needs Abba. Tell them that there is a Daddy!
