  1. If I am honest, I know this love in Matthew chapter 5 I am not capable of, it is just not natural to love my enemies – I am only capable of doing this by reflecting God’s love. I really like the Message version of Matthew 5:48: “In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you.”

    1. Love it! That idea of growing up is exactly what God has been speaking to me in preparing to preach Sunday. I just didn’t know Eugene Peterson had translated it that way first :).
