Like our Father in Heaven 2

Matthew 5:46-47 (NET) For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Even the tax collectors do the same, don’t they? And if you only greet your brothers, what more do you do? Even the Gentiles do the same, don’t they?

After Trevor forgave Bill, he noticed that the peace of God that he once enjoyed was now restored. The next time he saw Bill, his heart no longer raced because of hatred, but he treated him normally and kindly like before. Even Bill was surprised because he expected Trevor to become unfriendly and mean to him.

Bill started observing that Trevor was a believer in the Lord Jesus because he really wanted to know what it was about Trevor that made him have the power to overlook the evil he had done against him. He first thought Trevor was just acting so that he would revenge hard when he has the opportunity, but time passed and it was evident that Trevor had overlooked what he did. Because of this, he became afraid of Trevor and wanted to know more about the faith.

Loving our friends is normal and expected, and it doesn't reveal any power or special ability, but loving our enemies is proof that we have power that is not ordinary - the power of the divine life. The opportunity to forgive and love our enemies activates this power that we so desperately need to manifest in other areas of our lives.

Go into today remembering that walking in divine love gives expression to the power of the divine life that we have. This is our strongest proof that we have indeed been fathered by God.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please give me the grace and power to walk in your divine nature of love and mercy. Help me understand that my destiny cannot be manipulated by anyone but you.
