If we want more from God we must be willing to give more. We must be willing to lay aside all filthiness and all overflow of wickedness. Salvation is the first step, and Jesus did all of the hard work for us. All we have to do is admit we have sinned, accept the forgiveness that Christ sacrificed his life for and yield ourselves to Him.
As we grow in our faith, there will be circumstances that arise that will challenge the things God has told us that He will do. Maybe you are in the midst of the storm wondering if God is going to answer your prayers.
Sometimes when we look around at our circumstances and feel the weight of the pressures of this world, it’s hard to believe that we are loved. How can God allow the hard trials of life if He is good? How can He allow good people to suffer if He loves us?
So what does it mean to love our enemies? Consider Jesus. Jesus faced enemies everywhere he went and continues to face them to this day. He often showed love to his enemies by feeding them, teaching them, and treating them with compassion
