Supernatural Love

“For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? do not even the publicans this” Matthew 5:46 

Publicans, at the time of Jesus, were traitorous exortioners and almost by definition dishonest and heartless. They were the most despised people at that time and were considered thieves. But still as sinners as they were, there still exist love between them. But, what type of love?

Natural love, just, ordinary and self-centered. The love of the world.

Here, Jesus teaches us that when we love only those who love us, we are loving with the sinners’ type of love and this bears no Heavenly reward. Those who wants to make a difference and receive the reward from God, have to love in a different way with a different kind of love: SUPERNATURAL LOVE.

This type of love can only be understood by those who experienced the LOVE OF GOD. The love of God, good people is indiscriminate,perfect, everlasting, sacrificial, pure, strong,  measureless and wonderful. This is the love that God wants his children to have not only for those who love us but Mainly to the people who hate us, persecute us, do injustices to us, lie about us, and hurt us. For us to be like him and find perfection like he mentions in Matthew 5:48:
“Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

Those who are unable to love in this way, have not yet known Jesus, 1 John 4:8 mentions:
”Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”

So, people of God, let us today truly search the presence of God in our life. Have and encounter with him and be filled with his Holy spirit. This is the greatest reward that one shall receive. Let us love unconditionally and  undiscriminately.
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”, Matthew 5: 44

Let us do this prayer together.
In faith, Thash
