“Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.” Luke 6:27 (ESV)

God has become our all-satisfying treasure and so we don’t trust our adversaries out of our own sense of need and insecurity, but out of our own fullness with the satisfying glory of God.

(they) answered, “No one ever spoke like this man!” John 7:46 (ESV)

It would be well for the Church of Christ if ministers and teachers of religion would strive more to speak after their Lord’s pattern. Let them remember that elegant bombastic language, and a sensational, theatrical style of address, are utterly unlike their Master. Let them realize, that an eloquent simplicity is the hightest attainment of public speaking.

The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. John 1:7 (KJV)

Such is the corruption of human nature, that Christ is the cause of division among men.
