But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father 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. -Matthew 6:44,45
Jesus came to the earth and was the express image of the Father as it says in Hebrews 1. As I have been reading through the sermon of the mount I have been praying to see Jesus, and to really be changed by His words. What Jesus said above shows exactly how God treated me before I came to Christ. I was hater of God yet he blessed me, provided for me, and drew me to himself with His amazing love. My hope is that I can treat even the person who hates me the most as Jesus stated above, and truly live as a son of my Father in heaven.
