Jesus teachings and commands for the response of disciples over the law is amazing. Kingdom characters are built at the upper chambers of law and making the law to be at the lower chamber. ‘How’?

Disciples’ heritage in Christ is great and unquantifiable; the blessing of Abraham has been credited into our account automatically as a believer. One of the heritages says: whoever curses us shall be cursed and anyone who blesses us shall be blessed. This is a grace beyond description, it simply means that revenge is of God and not for us, every battle of our lives is the Lord’s battle. ( 2 Chron. 20:15).

Our problems are either we don’t trust or believe that God will do it so we tend to want to revenge for our-self . Christ Kingdom’ teaching demands that we should not  usurp God’s role but attacking evil without God’s guidance. Christian response to evil act against us must be above legalism (law). There is eternal victory when we allow God to fight the battle.

LOVE FOR ENEMIES.

A son is marked by obeying his father and by following in his father’s step.  Christian son-ship means loving our enemies and praying for those who persecute us. Contrary to what the law teaches, Kingdom teaching by our Lord Jesus on the Mount says: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Mt. 5:44). This Kingdom character will cleanse our hearts, flush out every death rats and cockroaches to make our heart pure enough to become sons of our Father in Heaven (v45). It guarantee our enduring victory physically and spiritually.

Jesus demonstrated this on the Cross when he prayed for those who persecuted and crucified Him. Intercession for enemies are important prayers, we are simply saying here that ‘God’,  vengeance belong to you alone.

HE WHO CREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH, THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA HAVE SPOKEN, WHO CAN UNDERSTAND HIS ERRORS?
