“But I say to you, love your enemies.” (Matthew 5:44)
Christianity promotes love that goes beyond the law and beyond the status quo. This love is the heart of God’s Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not other-worldly, it is in us and among us, even while business as usual proceeds.
Love worthy of the name Christian is all-inclusive and unconditional. God’s indiscriminate benevolence and unconditional mercy hold reality together. Who are we to separate what God has joined together?
Prayer: Lord, save me from being a cultural Christian.
