FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:38-48 (KJV)


38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:


39 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.


40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.


41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.


42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.


43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.


44 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;


45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.


46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?


47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?


48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:


Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount is so profound that it has continued to bless and impact successive generations of Christians. One outstanding quality of the sermon is that it reveals the new way of life that Jesus practised and introduced.

Let us examine how Jesus taught about love in this unique sermon. Matthew 5:38-48, “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth. But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (NKJV).


It sounds logical to love one’s neighbour and hate one’s enemies, but that is not the position of the Scripture under the New Testament. Jesus said we should love our enemies and pray for those who persecute or despitefully use us. Did he live what he taught? Yes, He did. As He lay on the Cross in excruciating pain, Jesus said, “… Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do…” (Luke 23:34a). Also as Stephen was being stoned, he said, “Lord, lay not this sin to their charge” (Acts 7:60b). I enjoin you to follow the examples of Christ and Stephen. Love your enemies and pray for those that hate or persecute you. Follow peace with all men!
