Today Jesus gives us a difficult
task. Go the second mile. Everything in us rebels against the demands of this part of the Sermon on the Mount. It cuts us to the core.
Yet incredible freedom is found in obeying this command.
I was completely blown away to find, after I had already prepared this message, that this very passage was burned into steel in the 9/11 attacks. I do not believe for a moment this is a coincidence. Governments must protect, but Christians must realize, "Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."
We can spend our entire life fighting for our rights only to find idolatry is our motive. There is healing at the foot of the Cross. Why don't you lay down your cause at His feet today?
