Matthew 5:43-48

In this, the sixth illustration that Jesus provides of what the gospelized life looks like, his words are profoundly challenging. Jesus calls us to love our enemies and not simply respond in the way the rest of the world does. Through the truth of the gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit, Gospelized men and women can become more and more like their heavenly Father who supremely loved his enemies through the death of Christ as a substitute by which his enemies were made his children.
