Sunday School Lesson
LOVE IN THE MIDST OF CRISES
It should not be surprising that the more Christlike one
is, the more strongly he will be opposed, and the more bit
terly he will be hated. A genuine Christian life is a constant
rebuke to the selfishness and sins of others, and frequently
provoker brutal jest, biting sarcasm, and cruel sneers.
"Love your enemies." That is what Christ did with His
enemies and what He commands His followers to do with
theirs. Whereas unsaved people hate their enemies and try
to harm them with their words and deeds, true Christians
love their enemies through the strength which the Lord
gives them and seek their highest welfare. To love enemies
is possible only for those who have been made partakers of
the divine nature, filled with the Holy Spirit and em
powered by Him.
"Do good to them which hate you." One may respond to
personal injury by vindictiveness, saying, "I will do my
enemy a greater injury than he has done to me;" or by
retaliation, saying, ."I will return like injury to my
enemy;" or by Christlikeness, saying, "I will return good
"Bless them that curse you." This involves speaking well
of those who curse you, and invoking God's blessings upon
them. Stephen asked God to bless those who were stoning
him to death, thereby proving that insults can be met with
prayers for the forgiveness of offenders.
"Pray for them which despitefully use you." Of this
Christ gave us the best example when He prayed for those
who abused Him, saying, "Father, forgive them; for they
know not what they do." It is best to leave those who abuse
us in the hands of the just God for He can deal far more ef
fectively with them than we can.
"Unto him that smiteth thee on the cheek offer also the
other." It is far better to suffer insult and injury than it is to
do wrong.' ,
"Give to every man that asketh of theee." Our Lord does
not command us to give exactly the thing for which we are
asked, but what is needed. We ought to give generously and
cheerfully but intelligently. For example, when one needs
food, clothing, and the gospel, he should not be given cash
with which to buy more liquor.
Very succinctly Christ stated the rule of Christian love,
"Do as you would be done by." No higher rule of conduct
toward others has ever been given. Note that it is not a
negative exhortation, but a positive one. Some would like to
interpret it: "Refrain from doing to others what you would
not desire them to do to you," but that is not what Christ
said. We should act towards others as we wish they would
act toward us. The standard we set up for others must be
the measure of our own conduct.
Luke 6: 35-36
What we measure out to others we may rightfully expect
to receive in return. Therefore, if we want others to be in
terested in us, then we must manifest and interest in
others. I we would like for others to judge us kindly, them
we must judge them in like manner. Christ said, "With
what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." God
will measure out to us in proportion as we measure out to
