Sermon on the Mount: Loving Your Enemies


Text:  Matthew 5:43-48

Date:  August 5, 2012

Listen to Audio: August 5, 2012 AM Sermon

Sometimes it is difficult to act lovingly toward the people you treasure the most.  In the midst of disagreements and daily stresses, to show love seems like a high calling – even towards someone you genuinely like.

In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gives us a higher challenge than merely showing love to people we treasure.  He tells us that love is to be a characteristic of the way we act towards all people – even our enemies.

On Sunday, August 5, we will consider Jesus’ instruction to love our neighbor, and explore its ramifications for our lives.
