How Do We Love Our Enemies? A Conversation with Jesus & a Song

Me: “Jesus, enough is enough. You just told us to sell our cloaks and buy swords, but now your telling us not to use our swords but to beat them into plow shares. Are you really telling us to sell our possessions and destroy our weapons? Do you really want us love our enemies, pray for them? Do you really expect us to do that? Won’t living like this will likely get us, our families, and friends tortured and killed.”

Jesus: Yep.

Me: But this isn’t safe.

Jesus: No it isn’t. Do you still love me?

Me: Yes.

Jesus: Those who love me keep my commands. I’m only asking you to follow my example. I did it and so can you. I’ll be with you every step of the way.

Me: Anything else?

Jesus: Forgive the people who hurt you and your loved ones. Show them what God is really like.

Me: What the %#@$, Jesus?

Jesus: I get that a lot. Follow me.
