Jesus and the Test of the Golden Sash

This morning we want to focus on the golden sash across Jesus chest. It is the sash that covers His heart. It is a Kingly sash, wore by one in authority. It is a symbol of strength for action. The material is real gold and gold is only achieved when refined by fire, indicating that He was tested, yet came forth as gold. The purity of gold over His heart represents the purity of His love. His heart of love is the basis of His authority, His strength and His actions. His love is the foundation for everything He is and does. This is Divine Love, which we understand when we see the Real Jesus. It is a Love this world does not understand. We need an extreme makeover of our concept of love. We need to see the Real Jesus to understand the Love that He expects us to have in our Christian Life. Most of us really only know phileo, brotherly love. It is love (actually friendship) based on common interests and concerns. It is usually based on our interests and concerns. JESUS EXPECTS CHRISTIANS TO HAVE AGAPE LOVE. He expressed what it means in Matthew 5:44 when He told us to "love your enemies" To love (agapáō) others means to see what their need is and to meet that need, not according to that person's concept of need, but that of the one who loves. For a believer, we are to see the needs of even our enemies and we must do everything in our power to meet that need. Believers are never told to love their enemies with the word philéō because that would mean to have the same interests as they have . TO SEE THIS WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND GOD CALLING US 'FRIENDS' God calls us his friend (phílos), as He did Abraham (James 2:23), when we adopt His interests as our own, just as Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son even as God did His own. The Son of Man, the Real Jesus Christ has a message for each of seven churches in Revelation. Each message indicates a facet or characteristic of His Divine Love, and how the church is falling short of His love. The very first church, Ephesus, thinks they love Jesus, but Jesus wants them to understand what Divine Love is really all about. Let us examine carefully Christ letter and allow the Holy Spirit to teach us: Let's Pray REVELATION 2:1-3  Jesus knows (eido)  "emphasizes better the absolute clearness of mental vision which photographs all the facts of life as they pass" (Swete) . 1. Works (ergon) • erga; The whole life and conduct as in John 6:29 . "Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” John 6:29 • deed, act, action, something done 2. Toil (kopos) • kópos; gen. kópou, from kóptō , to strike. Beating, wailing, grief with beating the breast, equal to kopetós , lamentation, wailing (Sept.: Jer. 51:3). In the NT, toil, labor, i.e., wearisome effort, generally • Originally suffering, weariness; hence exhausting labor 3. patient endurance (hupomone) • Hupomoné is associated with hope (1 Thess. 1:3) and refers to that quality of character which does not allow one to surrender to circumstances or succumb under trial. 4. Cannot tolerate evil men (Not able (ou dunēi).bear (bastasai) • No power to bear them. They are such a burden, you dismiss them as being a burden and drag to the congregation. 5. Test and deny false (pseudo) apostles 6. Patiently endured and born up for the sake of Jesus (bastazo) • bastázō; from básis, basis, foot. To bear, carry in the hands or on the shoulders (picturing the duty of a servant, to bear a pitcher of water). Also pictures carrying the cross. • Figuratively it means to bear, support, endure, i.e., labors, sufferings . 7. Not fainted or turned back. (kopiáō) • kopiáō; contracted kopió, from kópos, labor, fatigue. To be worn out, weary, faint Ephesus sounds like a great church. They are doing all the right things. They shoul dknow what love is: PAUL'S LETTER TO THE EPHESIANS Remember Paul's letter to the Ephesians: It was all about needing, knowing, living a life of Love, God's Divine Love.  1:5 - "In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ  2:4 - "For his great love wherewith he loved us"  3:17 - "that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  3:19 - " the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ"  4:2 - "bearing with one another in love"  4:15 - "speaking the truth in love"  4:16 - "the body...builds itself up in love"  5:2 - "Walk in love as Christ also loved us"  5:25 - "As Christ loved the church and gave himself for it"  5:25, 28, 33 "Husbands love your wives" - because you picture the love of Jesus Christ. How did the Church at Ephesus fail to wear the 'Golden Sash'? But I hold this against you, that you do not love as you did at first. Remember then how far you have fallen. Repent and live as you lived at first. Otherwise, if your heart remains unchanged, I shall come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. Revelation 2:4-5(Phillips) ~'But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. ~'Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent. Revelation 2:4-5(NASB) But I have this against you: You have abandoned the love ⌊you had⌋ at first. Remember then how far you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. Revelation 2:4-5(HCSB) Jesus sees and knows intimately how hard they labor and toil and try to live a life pleasing to Him. They live good and moral lives for His name's sake. They endure persecution for His sake.  However, Jesus sees that something is missing in their hearts.  Something about their service bothers Him.  Outwardly, everything is great, but inwardly, something is not right. He sees that their duty is correct, but their devotion is missing love. They are laboring and enduring from obedience rather than love. They have moved away, they have forgotten what made them new creations. They have forgotten the love of Jesus Christ. Instead of it being about Him, and their love for Him, it has become about the service, the duty, and the religious observances. They are serving Him simply because they should. Jesus holds this against them.  Remember their deeds at the first? They sacrificed everything for the sake of following Jesus! And a number of those who had practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver. So the word of the Lord continued to increase and prevail mightily. Acts 19:19-20 THEY HAVE FALLEN They have (aphēkes), at a particular moment, made a sad but definite departure from your first love (tēn agapēn sou tēn prōtēn). The Love you had at the first! It pictures a definite moment in time when they left, deserted, or quit loving Jesus with all their heart mind, soul and strength. It is the same word used in Romans 1:27 that describes a man's decision to leave the natural love of a woman and start loving a man. O yes, homosexuality is a decision, just as leaving your first love is a decision. REMEMBER YOUR FIRST WORKS The first works define your life, define your heart. The first works move you to crazy love, where you risk everything for the one you love. • The work of God resulted in something utterly crazy, giving His only Son to take all the sins of the world. [“This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” John 6:29] • The work of Jesus led Him to become rejected by His Father, so that He might redeem you and me. Jesus saw their service but He also saw their hearts, and saw that they were falling into ritual service, ritual devotion, ritual duties. They were faithfully doing their duty. They were being good people doing what good people should. Jesus never meant His followers to religious or good. He meant them to love, the same way He loved. That love was not comfortable, not good, but it risked everything. THE EPHESIANS NEEDED TO REPENT. YOU NEED TO ASK YOURSELF, DO I NEED TO REPENT? 1. They had made a definite decision, which weakened their love. 2. Their decision resulted in a fall from Divine Love, the only Love, which pleases the Lord. 3. Their decision resulted in duty not devotion. 4. Their decision resulted in the Lord's demand for repentance and return.  Decision: to love something other than Jesus Christ, or to disobey his commands  Fall: Change of focus meant that the throne of God lost its power Leaving their first love meant that sacrifice and devotion gave way to duty and observances. The impact of this letter to the Ephesians is seen in answering the following questions from what Jesus said in the Gospels. 1. DIVINE LOVE IS DEFINED BY JESUS CRAZY: READ MATTHEW 5:43-48 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect (COMPLETE, FULL), as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:43-48 LUKE 6:27-31 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them. 2. SOURCE OF DIVINE LOVE As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. JOHN 15:9-11 I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” JOHN 17:26 3. WHAT CAUSES US TO LOSE OUR LOVE A. NEGLECT OF THE WORD: Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me. JOHN 14:23-24 B. OTHER INTERESTS: “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. MATTHEW 6:24 C. FRIENDSHIP WITH THE WORLD: You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. JAMES 4:4 D. COMFORT VS SACRIFICE: READ MATT 19:17-21 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” The young man said to him, “All these I have kept. What do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect (complete, full), go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me". 4. HOW IMPORTANT IS IT THAT WE HAVE DIVINE LOVE? JOHN 5:40-44 "yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. I do not receive glory from people. But I know that you do not have the love of God within you. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him. How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? “If God were your Father, you would love me", John 8:42  Divine Love is Fullness of life! Be Full and Complete as the Father is Full! Only when you risk it all do you know true love and fullness! Which would you rather eat-the fruit of the forbidden tree or the fruit of the tree of life! Those that keep their first love will eat of the Tree of Life. The Tree of Life was in the Garden of Eden, where life was complete, full, until sin entered the world. The Tree of Life will be in the New Heavens, when God's plan is fulfilled, and life on earth is full! The world teaches that fullness of life is in possessions and money, a prestigious career, the number of friends you have, or even your family. But Jesus said "whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?" Mark 8:35-36 Divine Love is Fullness of Life, Fullness of Life comes to those willing to risk it all for His sake! 5. WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF FALLEN LOVE? In His letter to the church, the danger was the removal of the candlestick, which signifies the removal of the fire of the Holy Spirit. Today Ephesus lies in ruins, and the church is long gone. Worship Devoid of the Spirit Across the world there are churches that look like churches, act like churches, but the Divine Love of God is not in them. The Holy Spirit is not there. They are functioning out of a mistaken sense of duty. There may be a supposed love for Jesus, but they have fallen from His standards. They are down, serving in their fleshly strength. They are not living in the fullness of Christ of His love, of His word. They are like the Pharisees, content in their religious observances, yet on their way to Hell. Children Abandon the Church The other consequence is that our children grow up with a concept of religion, but no concept of loving a real Jesus. Therefore, they rebel against religion for the sake of religion, and seek after something else that fills the void in their heart. A Nation that is Outwardly Moral but inwardly Corrupt 6. HOW DO WE RETURN TO OUR FIRST LOVE? Jesus said we are to do three things: A.Remember B.Remember what He has done for you C.Remember what you were willing to do at first. D.Repent E.Change your heart focus, F.Get rid of those things that have captured your affections, that have taken the place of Jesus Christ. G.Return H.Do what you did when you first came to Jesus I.Live for Him totally. J.Risk it all for Him The Lesson of David: READ PSALMS 51:7-15 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, O God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. Psalms 51:7-15 Remember what Jesus asked Peter? READ JOHN 21:15-18 "WHEN they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep”. He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him “Feed my sheep. Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.” Peter had left his first love, even denying Christ, and returning to the thing he loved most-fishing. Yet, when confronted by Jesus, he could only confess deep emotions for Jesus. He was not quite ready to confess agape love, that love that risks everything, sacrifices everything. Still, Jesus said, feed and care for my sheep. You will one day know that agape love. Return to the works you did at the first. Return to the time you depended upon me for everything. The agape will return. You will regain your first love. You will sacrifice, you will risk it all! Look at what Peter wrote later in life: PETER CAME TO AGAPE JESUS CHRIST READ 2 PETER 1:3-11 - His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins. Therefore, brothers, be all the more diligent to make your calling and election sure, for if you practice these qualities you will never fall. For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:3-11  You will never fall as I did. You will keep your first love! Do You See the Real Jesus? Do you see His Golden Sash? Do You Pass the Gold Sash Test.? Do You Love Him with Divine Love? Have you fallen into comfort and complacency? Are you still doing the first works? Are you still risking everything for Jesus Christ? Perhaps you never did, perhaps you are not a genuine follower of Jesus Christ. Perhaps you never loved Him with agape love. You need to make sure you are a Christian. You need to repent and love Jesus with agape, sacrificing, risking it all kind of love! Do you really want to Know Divine Love? Do you want to see the Real Jesus? Turn with me to Hebrews 13:11 Jesus Christ died to set apart a people unto God. If we truly love Him, we must go to him outside the camp. ‘Outside the camp’ is where the lepers were kept. ‘Outside the camp’ is where murderers were sent. ‘Outside the camp’ is where the beggar begged as the apostles walked through the gate. ‘Outside the camp’ was where all who were to be separated from society at large were to be kept. ‘Outside the camp’ is where we were called to ‘go to him’ and ‘bear the reproach he endured’ – death. Going Outside the Camp is where we discover the Love of the Golden Sash. By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him; 1 John 3:16-19 • Divine Love risks it all for the city that is to come. • Whatever you lose in this life will be made up 1000 fold in the life to come. • We can either retreat and perish in the wilderness • We can risk it all for the love of Jesus Christ, who risked it all for us. the 1600's there was a man named Joseph Aline and he wrote a book entitled An Alarm to Unconverted Sinners.Let me close our time with what he said. "All of Christ is accented by the sincere convert. He loves not only the wages, but the work of Christ. Not only the benefits but the burden of Christ. He's willing not only to tread out the corn but to draw under the yoke. He takes up the command of Christ, yea, even the crossof Christ. The unsound man closes by halves with Christ. He's all for the salvation of Christ but he's not for sanctification. He is for the privileges but appropriates not the person of Christ. He divides the offices and benefits of Christ. This is an error in the foundation. Who so loveth life let him beware here. It is an undoing mistake of which you have beenoften warned and yet none is more common. Jesus is a sweet name but men love not the Lord Jesus in sincerity. They divide what God has joined, the King and the Priest, yea they will not accept the salvation of Christ as He intends it. They divide it, every man's vote is for salvation from suffering but they desire not to be saved from sinning. They would have their lives saved but with all would have their lusts. Yea, many divide here again, they would be content to have some of their sins destroyed but they cannot leave the lap of Delilah or divorce the beloved Herodias. They cannot be cruel to the right eye or right hand. The Lord must pardon then in this thing. 0 be careful here, your soul depends on it. The sound convert takes a whole Christ, takes Him for all intents and purposes, without exceptions, without limitations, without reserve. He's willing to have Christ upon any terms. He's willing to have the dominion of Christ as well as deliverance by Christ and he says with Paul, "Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?" end quote. •

Matthew 5:43-48 Let’s face it, the world can be an ugly place and people can make us angry. People hurt us, lie to us, steal from us, stab us in the back, and can be down right malicious. Yet, Jesus tells us to love them anyway! That sounds crazy doesn’t it? But, that is how Jesus lived his life and so should we. Jesus tells us to love those we would rather hate. And in reality, it’s easier to hate than it is to love. Loving those who are our enemies is a radical and totally anti-cultural thought. The world would never say love your enemies. The world says to fight back and take what’s yours, after all you deserve it and if is someone hurts you then you hurt them. Jesus tells us to try something different. He wants us to try it His way and see if this doesn’t work better. In this message we are going to take Jesus’ advice and see what happens when we try it His way. We need to learn to love those we would rather hate.

5. Kindness

  • By Heather Smith

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. Because of God’s great love for us, we can be kind to everyone.Jesus personified kindness in the way He lived and interacted with the people He met. But, as we read the Gospels, we find that Jesus didn’t just model kindness. He commanded it. By treating others the way we want to be treated, we live out the way Jesus taught us to live. WEEK 1 Key Question: What does kindness look like? While this may seem like a simple question, preteens need to start from a concrete idea before connecting that idea to their own life. When kids can identify the kindness of others, they have a better chance of replicating that in their own life. We want kids to figure out how they can show kindness to others based on the ways people have been kind to them. We start the month talking about the foundation for our kindness. In Titus 3:4-7, Paul talked about God’s amazing kindness towards us. God poured out His kindness when He sent Jesus to rescue us from the consequences of our sin. We can have life forever because of God’s kindness and love. Bottom Line: Be kind to others because God is kind to you. We pray that as kids learn about God’s kindness through Jesus, they will see how they can reflect God’s kindness to the people in their life. WEEK 2 Key Question: When is it hard to be kind? If we’re completely honest, we encounter situations when we don’t feel like being kind. Preteens are starting to understand how to think about what they do and don’t want to do. We hope they can work through the difficulties they face when showing kindness when they don’t want to show kindness. If they can identify when it’s hard to be kind, they can figure out a plan to help them show kindness anyway. In Ruth 1 and 2, we find Naomi and her daughter-in-law, Ruth. Their husbands have died and Ruth has the opportunity to return home to her family. Instead, she chooses to show kindness to Naomi and stay with her. Ruth's kindness doesn't go unnoticed. Boaz notices how Ruth is caring for her mother-in-law. He goes above and beyond to care for Ruth and completely changes her life. Bottom Line: Be kind to your family and friends. When it comes to our family and friends, we often find ourselves taking them for granted. We hope through the story of Ruth, kids will learn to show kindness to those we care about most. WEEK 3 Key Question: Have you ever received unexpected kindness? Often the best kindness is the kindness that feels completely random. Help kids discover how they feel when someone surprises them with kindness. Help them figure out the unexpected ways they can show kindness to people in their life. In Matthew 25:35-40,we’ll revisit one of Jesus' teachings on kindness. For one reason or another, people are overlooked every day—no one even notices them, much less shows kindness to them. But Jesus says that when we show kindness to one of the least of these, it's as if we're showing kindness to Him. We hope to discover how they can show kindness to people who are overlooked in their world. Bottom Line: Be kind to people who are overlooked. Everyone deserves to be treated like they’re valuable, no matter who they are. We hope kids start to see people who have needs and work with the adults in their life to show kindness and meet those needs. WEEK 4 Key Question: How can you be kind to people you don’t get along with? There are times when we face people who we feel don’t deserve our kindness. Most likely, preteens have a list of people who they don’t get along with and why those people don’t deserve their kindness. But Jesus tells us to love our enemies. Through this question, we hope kids start to discover how they can show kindness to people who fall into this category. We finish out our month in Matthew 5:43-48. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus expands the scope of who deserves our kindness. Not everyone will be kind to us; some may be quite mean to us. Jesus says that we should love our enemies and pray for them. Bottom Line: Be kind to people who aren’t kind to you. As kids discover what Jesus says about loving our enemies, we pray that your kids discover ways they can show God’s love and kindness to people they might not get along with all of the time. They don’t have to be best friends, but they can be kind. Kids : Rewind Preteen : Rewind Preview Video

HC Community Book Club: The Interviews

Matthew 5:43-48 In the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7, Jesus challenges his listeners to love their enemies, not just their friends. What do you think he means in chapter 5 verse 45 when he says that those who love their enemies will “ be children of your Father in heaven.” How are these two things related? Because like Bob says, “There’s a big difference between being pen pals and being real pals. . . Friends do—they don’t just think about it.” Can you think of a time in your friendships when you experienced the shift from pen pal to real pal? How does that mix with Jesus’ command to love our enemies?

01.16.2011 Grace Summit Sermon - Sermon on the Mount 3 - When are we most like God?

Lord, thank You for the opportunities You give us. Help us as we go to Honduras to be a testimony as we build a house for this widow. As we look at Your sermon – the best sermon ever preached – help us to learn to be like You – to follow this radical message You gave – extreme, but what You expect of us – how You lived and how You want us to live. We commit ourselves to learning to live this sermon as disciples of Your Kingdom. In Your name we pray. There are 4 passages in this section where Jesus reinterprets the disciples, and those listening – their understanding of the Law. Matt. 5:43 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.' 44 "But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you 45 in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on [the] evil and [the] good, and sends rain on [the] righteous and [the] unrighteous. 46 "For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax-gatherers do the same? 47 "And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more [than others]? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 "Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Jesus starts this – the fifth time – you have heard it said – then he quotes a verse from the Old Testament – and then adds something to it to apply it to their lives – and then, But I say to you… - and gives the reinterpretation of what this Law is about. He focuses their attention on love. Love your neighbor. This is the Great Commandment – Love the Lord, Love your neighbor – if you do these two things – you do it all! If you truly do this, you are accomplishing the whole of the Old Testament Law. Love your neighbor as yourself – Leviticus 18:19 Hate your enemy – that is not to be found! That is not a verse he is quoting. He is revealing to the Jews a mistake they have made in their interpretation of the Law. The Jews – when they boiled down Leviticus 18:19 – it was boiled down to loving those who are like them – but Jesus said, what good is that? They thought it should mean others who are like me! …but who is my neighbor? The rich young ruler did this to justify himself. And Jesus tells the Story of the Good Samaritan. NO! Your neighbor is anyone in need whom God brings into your life. Deut. 7: 2 and when the Lord your God shall deliver them before you, and you shall defeat them, then you shall utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them and show no favor to them. 3 The Jews read verses like this – and thought of God as a mean old ugly God. Ps. 139:21 Do I not hate those who hate Thee, O Lord? And do I not loathe those who rise up against Thee? 22 I hate them with the utmost hatred; They have become my enemies. Psalm 5: 4 For Thou art not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; No evil dwells with Thee. 5 The boastful shall not stand before Thine eyes; Thou dost hate all who do iniquity. And they took these verses to mean that God wants us to hate our enemies. But Jesus says, Love your enemies. This is the end of the story – the correct interpretation – nothing else needs to be said – pray for those who persecute you. When we hear Love your enemies, we think – yeah, that’s right – we are Christians. But when they heard this the first time – it was radical and went against everything they believed. They didn’t even give love to Jewish people who were ostracized from the community – the Tax Collectors/sinners/etc. You don’t understand Love – Jesus is telling them. The verse right before this: Give to everyone who asks of you. Your love needs to go to all the world. Everyone. He goes on in the verse – 45 That you may be children of your father in heaven. This doesn’t mean that by loving your enemy that you become a Christian. We know that we are saved by Grace – coming to Christ and by what He has done for us on the cross. Rather, the Children are to be like the Father. When you love your neighbor and your enemies – All of them – not just your singular enemy – when we love our enemies – we are most like God. That is what He is saying – this is the character of God. You shall be perfect like your heavenly father is perfect – we’re not even close – if you think you are close, you are probably further than anyone – but all of this is summed up – when you love your neighbor AND your enemies. For these guys – they had enemies – the Romans – and they experienced religious persecution from them and from the Jews as well. Some of us have real enemies. To my knowledge, I don’t think I do. Second category – God wants us to love – those who may be antagonistic toward your faith. If you are a student, you probably know people who are antagonistic toward your faith – trying to get you to fail in the faith. Not that they are physical enemies. For all of us, we may not have enemies, but unfriendly people – rude/crude individuals – people who just do stuff to make you mad! Hopefully they don’t live in the same household…. Often, they are at work or school. And God wants us to learn to love them. Fourth – people who have wounded us – lied to us, cheated, ripped us off – abused. And God says – Love your enemy. Not that they are necessarily an enemy – but someone God calls you to love. People who are hard to love. And that is different for each of us. We are most like God when we love people who are hard to love. What I am going to do to get practical with this – let’s look at Luke: Luke 6: 27 "But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you 3 practical way s- do deeds of kindness – acts of mercy – that could be many things – if you have someone at work who is hard to love – Jesus says – Do something good for that person – some act of kindness. That is radical! Really different! Bless those who curse you – and I think this refers to our speech – one of the ways we show ourselves to be enemies is to gossip – to use our speech to get to people. You don’t usually get beaten up or beat others up – but I have used words, and others have used words against me… - sticks and stones…words can injure for life. Speak well of them. And then pray. You can always pray for an enemy. You may not be able to do something good for them – or to wish them well – but you can pray for them. 29 "Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; You do not have the option to retaliate any more. Whether physically or in some other form. and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either. 30 "Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back. 31 "And just as you want people to treat you, treat them in the same way. Jesus gives 3 examples to clarify - If you love those who love you – what credit is that to you? If you do good to those who do good to you – and lend to those – 31 "And just as you want people to treat you, treat them in the same way. 32 "And if you love those who love you, what credit is [that] to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 "And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is [that] to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 "And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is [that] to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, in order to receive back the same [amount.] 35 "But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil [men.] Bring it down to the real world – how is it real in your life? If it doesn’t become real in your life and circumstances – we have not gone anywhere. As a nation – we have some enemies – terrorists – even in an extreme circumstance like that – you can pray. Is there a prayer for the Czar? Yes, bless the czar and keep the czar as far away from here! We can pray that God would speak to them and save them. That is what that enemy needs the most. Do you think a lot of Christians pray for terrorists that they would come to Christ? Do you ever pray for North Korea? Iran? Getting more real – if there is someone in your own life – do you pray for him? Pray that God would do a work in their life so that they might have the blessing of knowing Him and living forever with Him. Second – the Government. The Government is not your enemy – they have been appointed by God for our good – but the reality – sometimes a lot of Christians treat the government like the enemy. Pray for those in authority. President/governor/ and all – when is the last time you prayed for President Obama? Pray that God would give them wisdom and strength to lead this nation in a way that maintains peace. We are to honor those in authority – bless! I urge you to stay away from all of the jokes. I have stopped listening to News Talk – and it has been so healthy – but it is a bunch of people speaking poorly of other people. I don’t know what is going on as much – but it is better that way. All the jokes about President Obama and Sarah Palin are not to be on our lips! Sarah Palin did nothing to you. Yes, we have freedom of speech and I have no problem with however you vote – but they are in authority and we should guard our tongues. Work and school – you have people who are seeking their own interest – hard to get along with. Love, seek their good, speak well of them – don’t get involved in the gossip.. Think of being like your heavenly father. You know the work atmosphere – gossip and backstabbing often take place – and as a follower of Jesus – if you go in with the attitude of making others successful and not saying mean things – and helping and serving people – will they notice the difference? I think so. The point of this – to be like our father in heaven. Our good works will be seen by people in such a way to give glory to God – and He tells how this is to happen. You do good to someone at work who has it in for you – and you show love – then you are like your father. Hopefully you don’t have enemies here at church – but oftentimes, there are people who are hard to love – the gospel is about bringing in people who have nowhere else to go. Imagine these poor disciples – it is almost like Jesus picked people who couldn’t get along and chose them to be together! When we come to church – we are to see ourselves as servants and to love those who are hard to love – that is the way God is with us. We think – we are easy to love. Before God rescued you – did you think you were pretty good – east for God to rescue you? But it was hard for God to love you – so hard that He had to shed His blood and die for you on a cross. For us – to what length do we go for those who are hard to love? To love the difficult? It is honestly easy to just avoid. We don’t hate them – as Christians, we are better than that – but we avoid them – and I think that is the same as hating. James: if your brother is in need and you don’t do anything – you have not fulfilled the commandment to love. Fifth – those who have injured/wounded us – God tells us to love them. We went into this a couple months back. So I won’t go into it – but it begins with forgiveness. The end of Luke – is changed. Matthew says – perfect as your heavenly father is perfect – this is a future thing Luke: merciful as your father is merciful. – only used here and in James – but used in the Old Testament to demonstrate the character of God. You shall be merciful – because THAT IS THE QUALITY OF GOD. Merciful – compassion – pity – the lamenting of regretting of a person’s misfortune or death. When is the last time you lamented a person’s misfortune? And regretted? Do you know how it is when you regret something that happens in your own life and it eats at you? When has that feeling been in your toward someone else’s misfortune. Metaphorically sympathy, pity – means to have compassion, to pity , in the sense both of a mere feeling Mosses asked to see God’s glory – His holiness/person/all that He is – the core of His being. Ex. 34: 6 Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; 7 who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave [the guilty] unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations. We are most like God when we are merciful to those who don’t deserve it. Who is God? Compassion. Gracious. Slow to anger. Abounding in lovingkindness Lord, help us to love those who are hard to love – it will be different for all of us – someone who fits the bill is out there – whom you are calling us to love for Your glory – that the world might see that we are children of our Father who is in heaven – that we might demonstrate the character of God to the world.

How to Love Your Enemies (Matthew 5 43-48)

You either love him or loathe him. He is one of the most popular, well known, larger than life faces on TV. Usually Jeremy Clarkson is to be seen extolling the virtues of shiny new cars on BBC2′s Top Gear. But a while back he talked with a passion of something far more fundamental – the often forgotten heroism of men who risked their lives for their country. Clarkson presented a BBC documentary, “The Victoria Cross: For Valour”, examining the stories of some of our VC heroes, focusing on the one he found so personally inspirational, including his father-in-law he never knew but deeply admired.

SEE THE NEED - FILL THE NEED -FORGET THE WHY Matthew 5:38-48 (NLT) Teaching about Revenge 38 “You have heard the law that says the punishment must match the injury: ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’[a] 39 But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also. 40 If you are sued in court and your shirt is taken from you, give your coat, too. 41 If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile,[b] carry it two miles. 42 Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow. Teaching About Love for Enemies 43 “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’[c] and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies![d] Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. 46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. 47 If you are kind only to your friends,[e] how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. 48 But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.

10. Why We Ought to Pray for Our Enemies (Part 2)

Why We Ought to Pray for Our Enemies (Part 2)

Praying Through the Bible #114 TEXT: Matthew 5:43-48 Allow me to begin by sharing with you a quote by Matthew Henry on this important text: He said,"The Jewish teachers by 'neighbor' understood only those who were of their own country, nation, and religion, whom they were pleased to look upon as their friends. The Lord Jesus teaches that we must do all the real kindness we can to all, especially to their souls. We must pray for them. While many will render good for good, we must render good for evil; and this will speak a nobler principle than most men act by. Others salute their brethren, and embrace those of their own party, and way, and opinion, but we must not so confine our respect. It is the duty of Christians to desire, and aim at, and press towards perfection in grace and holiness. And therein we must study to conform ourselves to the example of our heavenly Father. Surely more is to be expected from the followers of Christ than from others; surely more will be found in them than in others. Let us beg of God to enable us to prove ourselves his children." When I was visiting England once, I went into the church where John and Charles Wesley’s father preached. I picked up as a souvenir a bookmarker that contained a quote from John Wesley. It goes like this: Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can. We have already established that the way Jesus Christ commands us to act toward our enemies is radically different from what we are naturally predisposed to doing. Instead of hating our enemies and holding grudges against them, we are commanded to love them, do good to them, and even pray for them. Last week, we saw that we ought to pray for our enemies is because by doing so, we honor God's will above our desires. Jesus Christ points out the common human perspective when he says to his listeners, "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy..." However, He challenges us to live our lives differently when He says, "But I say unto you, Love your enemies..." When we pray for our enemies, we are setting aside our fleshly, selfish desires and following the Holy Spirit's guidance. As the children of God, we are to be filled with the Spirit and led by the Spirit; and when we are, we will pray for our enemies. Today, we are going to look at why we ought to pray for our enemies because we have been forewarned about them. In this particular passage, Jesus is not speaking exclusively to people who are committed followers of Him. He is talking to His disciples as well as to the crowds who are following Him because of the miracles that He has worked. However, Jesus Christ did warn us in other passages that we as Christians will have enemies because of our faith.

When we are hated and persecuted by those who oppose us because we are followers of Jesus Christ, we ought not to be surprised. Jesus told us that such things would happen. Because he forewarned us, our response should not be one of haste and impatience. We should not react in a natural, fleshly manner -- with angry words, trying to defend ourselves, or trying to harm the person who has harmed us. But, rather, we should respond with the spiritual and seemingly unnatural response of praying for our enemies. Now, some of you might be thinking, 'Of course, I'll pray for my enemies. I'll pray that something bad happens to them. I'll pray that God would pay them back for what they have done for me.' A recent LifeWay survey found that 14% of Americans have prayed for God to take revenge on someone who they were hurt by and 9% of people prayed for 'bad things to...
