I saw this video posted by two blogging friends of mine: Michael Stephens (A “Mike” for Christ), and Susan Irene Fox. This video is so good and so important for the time we’re living in that I had to spread the word myself.
If Jesus taught us anything it’s that hatred and violence never solves anything. It is “anti-Christ” in any form. Love is the answer. Love is our only escape from escalating violence and the only way toward living in real peace with one another.
Let’s pray for love and understanding to escalate instead!
“He calls us into unity; He calls us into oneness. When you love someone, you create a new oneness, a new unity with them, where there is no “other,” actually….
“I believe the teachings of Jesus have the answers that the world is looking for. We are just called out to live them. We are not called to just make peace, we called to create a beloved community of all peoples of this land….
Not just those who love us, but loving the enemy as well. And that’s what following Jesus is all about.” (Sami Awad – Christian Palestinian living in Bethlehem)
14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. (Col. 3:14 NLT)
