God loves us, helps us, and even dies for us, even when we are still sinners. This is grace—and because we are so blessed, we are enabled to live out Christ’s calling: to give grace to others. Even to those the world might see as undeserving. Even to those the world might see as enemies.
As we practice loving those who can’t give back, we might find ourselves able to love even our deepest enemies. Grace has a way of expanding. We are called to give the grace we all have already received. We are called to give forgiveness. Just as Jesus did for us.
This message is an excerpt of “Even our enemies” by Katie Hines-Shah in the July/August 2019 issue of Gather magazine.
