Dare We Go There?


I say yes… let’s go there.

I’m speaking about the simple command that Jesus spoke to us in the New Testament when he said:

“But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”(Matthew 5:39).

I’m thinking about this scripture in relation to war and all that war involves. Such as, useless deaths, devastation of land and home, losses of precious freedom’s, the annialation of cultures and races.

Now I recognize that I’m about to enter a real hornet’s nest as far as world opinion is concerned, the status quo, being politically correct, rules of national diplomacy, current gallop polls and the like.

But you know what? None of that really matters when human lives are at stake, when our brothers and sisters are dying senseless deaths every day, and the world is spinning closer and closer to its’ own self-destruction because of this madness called war.

My only interest in sharing these few thoughts with you is for all of us, as “God’s children” yes, that’s right all of us, who happen to be created in His likeness, the “Red,” the Yellow, the Black and the White (who are “ALL” precious in His sight) would simply come together and sit down at the feet of Jesus, and really ‘hear” him when he says:

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. (Matthew 5:44)

And yes, it really is…that simple, the question we must asked ourselves is…Dare we go there?

"Unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt.18: 3)










If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I like the challenge of doing good to those who persecute. If this were done on a national basis we could maybe begin to learn to trust one another again. Ansd yes, it starts on a personal basis, and it's great to encourage in this direction.
