Love Your Enemies

The Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany

Pastor Seth Georgson •

Joseph knew that there was nothing for him to gain by seeking justice or revenge against his brothers. He was already running all of Egypt. He trusted that God was merciful to him while things were bad and even after he was in charge he still humbly declared that it was God who placed him there. Even if his brothers didn’t repent they couldn’t take that away from him. How much more secure is your status as God’s own dearly loved child? You are baptized into Christ! You’re clothed with the royal robes of his righteousness! You have the reward of heaven in store for you! No one can take that away!

So pray for those who persecute you. Bless those who curse you. Do good to those who hate you. And love your enemies with Jesus’ love.
