A true Christian's life should represent the love, compassion, and forgiveness of Christ. In this verse, Jesus reminds us that true Christians will love their enemies. It's not easy to love those who mistreat, despise, curse, and persecute you; however, as Christians, we ought to. Jesus' love, grace, forgiveness, and peace should be pouring through us. The closer we get to Christ, the more our life will reflect Him. Don't let those who hate, despise, and curse you ruin your testimony and joy that you have through Jesus, but let's do as Jesus says in this verse and love, pray, and do good to our enemies. Let Christ always be glorified through us, so that the world can see that true Christianity is lifting up the name of Jesus Christ.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Matthew 5:44 (KJV)
