A surrendered people.

Series: The Gospel of Luke: Strengthened in Spirit | Week 2: A Limitless Love

Read Luke 6:29-31

1. How does each command Jesus gives in these verses show love as an action rather than a feeling?
2. Most other religions say, “Don’t do to others what you don’t want done to you.” How is the command of Jesus in verse 31 different?
3. How do these commands demand a surrendered life more than just a good, moral life?

Because of the character and heart of God evidenced in the rest of Scripture, we can know Jesus is not telling us to be passive, to accept abuse, or to compromise convictions. God is passionate about justice, but He is equally passionate about the redemption and restoration of our offenders. Are you? Pray now, and often, for God to help you humanize your enemies, seeing them the way He sees them. Ask for a heart of compassion, grace, and mercy.
