WHEN LOVE TRULY CONQUERS ALL
MATTHEW 5:43-48

YOU HAVE HEARD THAT IT WAS SAID THAT, YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AND HATE YOUR ENEMY……

Love conquers all the Bible tells us, and it is so very true.

It may not be easy to practice all of the time but it does make life easier for ALL, eventually, when in full bloom.


Love in display, separates the believer from the world, the text above from the book of Matthew says it all about what is expected of us and how we are to conduct ourselves as sojourners in this world and heirs of that special Kingdom, distinctive and outstanding


Love breaks the barriers of all categories of PREJUDICE and HATE, you may even be hated in some instances for being able to endure and still display love when so much hate pressures are directed at you, making it all the more difficult but not to worry, the focus is JESUS the author and finisher of our faith and how to please Him in our words, actions and inactions (Remember , you can never suffer as much as He did, but He endured for A purpose! Us! )



Are you a victim of, or are you often discriminated against or always on the receiving end of prejudice and hate in one form or another?

Today I encourage you not to despair but ask for strength to give back love in return.


Even when it seems so difficult to love because of frustrations and anger that you may feel, ask for strength from above because it is what pleases God that should be your motivation and encouragement not what would feed your flesh as it motivates you to react in 'natural' response.


It isn’t about fighting for your right or human dignity as much as it is, extending the love of Christ to that one, who continually holds you in disdain and tries without relenting to strip you off all dignity, persecuting, oppressing and suppressing you in your entire Endeavour.


Jesus once said that He came not for those who were already well but for those who need Him as healer!

This tells me something, it tells me that SO MANY are sick, needing help and a touch from above, especially that one who seems to be so snotty and rude, deep down He or she lacks self esteem and is deeply afraid and in need of something or someone but always tries to cover up with attitudes and looks for a scapegoat to take out his or her frustrations on and YOU are the first target!


Do not despair neither should you be dismayed but be encouraged by what God has in stock for you as you pursue goals in His name because, He has assured you that you were made wonderfully and beautifully in His image and likeness and AM SURE YOU KNOW THAT HE COULD NEVER TELL A LIE AND HE SAYS IT ONLY WHEN HE MEANS IT!


Yes, hard it may often be, ASK HOW JESUS WOULD HANDLE THE SITUATION AND DO LIKEWISE in all humility and obedience.
