A Practical Guide to Loving Your Enemies

As a biblical therapist who helps others address life’s challenges through scriptural insights, I’ve learned that my ability to deal with moments like these depends on compassion and love. I can love hurtful people by remembering to take a few deep breaths. It seems simple. Right? I take a minute to inhale, filling my belly with air; then I exhale every bit of it. This washes away the adrenaline that spikes my emotions, which have been heightened by frustrated people snatching shopping carts. I take a few slow, easy breaths until peace replaces my anger.

OPINION: We may grow weary; the forces of intolerance never do

In the Bible, in the book of Galatians, the Apostle Paul issues this admonition:. Talk about things that are easier said than done. For some of us, after all, this is a weary season, a season of exhausted hope and worn expectation that would have seemed impossible on that victorious November night 14 years ago when a Black senator, just elected president of the United States, stood on a stage in Chicago’s Grant Park and proclaimed, “Change has come to America.”

FIRST-PERSON: What if Southern Baptists ceased to exist?

More and more, I’m hearing people talk about the slow death of the SBC. Some are even saying last year’s presidential election shows a three-way separation between Traditional Baptists, Reformed Baptists and so-called Moderate Baptists. I pray these folks are wrong. Without any inkling of pride, I remember...

Your Prayer Discipline

Prepare yourself for this time with God by letting go of any distractions. Take several slow, deep breaths and remember that you are in the loving presence of God. Galatians 3:5-7 Does, then, the one who supplies the Spirit to you and works mighty deeds among you do so from works of the law or from faith in what you have heard? Thus Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”Realize then that it is those who have faith who are children of Abraham.

What Is the Difference Between Karma and Reaping What You Sow?

“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap,” Galatians 6:7. For many people, the word ‘karma’ is used interchangeably with the biblical concept of reaping what you sow. And that’s understandable, given how these two principles sound like the same exact thing. However, they are two very different concepts.

The Son Sets You Free

John 8:31-59, Psalm 26:2-3, Romans 6:15-18, Galatians 5:1. Last night, I felt led to visit a church our family attended many years ago. I’d been wrestling with some relational conflict during the week—something that’s not common for me—and was at a loss for how to engage the situation spiritually. My hands felt tied. As believers, we have the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us, but sometimes it’s hard to know how to access that power.

Powerless But Not Helpless

The Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ. – Galatians 3:22. Taking our lives back begins with accepting the reality that we can’t take our lives back. Not on our own. In other words, we must accept the reality that we don’t have what it takes to undo the mess our lives have become. As Paul puts it, we are prisoners of sin—our own and the sin of others. We have no ability on our own to break free.

Do Not Grow Weary

I wrote a brief history of the church I pastor for our webpage. Part of that history was recapping all of the outreaches we have done. During the fifteen years of our existence, we have had a food pantry during Covid, handed out backpacks, donated shoeboxes to Operation Christmas Child, and more. Each of those outreaches had a season, and then they were done. Paul reminds us, “Do not grow weary in doing good.”

Choose His Grace

When we read Galatians 3, we hear the Good News of the Grace of Jesus. We hear that we are now under Grace and not under the Law. We’re free. We don’t have to “perform” well enough for God to love and accept us. When we believed in Jesus Christ, we were made right with God. Christ fulfilled God’s standards that we could never meet. He paid the price we could never pay. The Galatians didn’t realize they were living under a mixture of Law and Grace. Paul wrote to show them that, although they believed in Christ, they were still in bondage to the Law. His words hit home with us, too. Do we also live under a mixture of Law and Grace?

Both credible and effective!

Here we find the apostle Paul 14 years into his gospel ministry, which has been to Gentiles almost exclusively:. “Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and also took Titus with me. And I went up by revelation, and communicated to them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those who were of reputation, lest by any means I might run, or had run, in vain.” — Galatians 2:1-2 NKJV.

Stand Up to Temptation

Living in the world is not an easy task for a Christian, on any day. Between the constant emphasis on self and wealth building, we must be on the lookout for temptation around every corner. Even within the Church, we can find those who are not acting within the scope of Christ’s desire for His Church. Some think, naively, that this is a contemporary problem of 21st Century America. It is not. It is as old as humanity, but that does not give us the excuse to give up.
