Mat 22:35-40 AKJV 35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like to it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Good day all, In the Word of God, Jesus said many things which could be called hard sayings. In other words, only those that understood the revelation, or to whom it was revealed could receive it.
In Luke 6:31-38 31, Yeshua said, “And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise.
32 For if you love them which love you, what thank have you? for sinners also love those that love them.
33 And if you do good to them which do good to you, what thank have you? for sinners also do even the same.
34 And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thank have you? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35 But love you your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind to the unthankful and to the evil.
36 Be you therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
37 Judge not, and you shall not be judged: condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: forgive, and you shall be forgiven.
This is truly a hard saying. The reason this is a hard saying is because not many people can do this. Only those who have the Holy Spirit of God and the fruit of the spirit can understand that as God is merciful, kind, compassionate and abounding in love, so should we be towards one another.
The Bible says in the last days, the love of many will grow cold. Matt 24:12
You can see it clearly not only in the world, but in the church.
As I was praying the Lord showed me that if love is the greatest commandment, and people violate it, in that day they will stand before God because of the lack of it.
God is love, God’s love is so merciful, vast, wide and deep, that I don’t think we truly understand it at times. It is beyond human comprehension. This is why this scripture is a hard saying.
Always remember that to be meek does not mean you are weak. Jesus was meek but certainly not weak! Love is the greatest virtue one could ever possess.
Remember that Jesus said vengeance is mine, I will repay. Rest in God’s Word today knowing that he loves you and sees the struggle, and the pain. As the righteous judge of heaven and earth, he will render the appropriate justice in due season! May God bless you!
