When We Think The Thoughts of Jesus We Will Always Be Crossways With The World

To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”” (Romans 12:20, ESV)  This verse makes no sense when you view it in light of the ways of the world in which we live. In the world we would do whatever we can to attack and put down those who are opposed to us – our enemies. That is not the way of God. The way of God, the way for us to live with the ‘mark of Christ’ on our lives is to do the opposite of the world. Don’t kick your enemy when he is down, help him up. Do the very good to our enemy that we would want someone to do to us. Ultimately, we do this simply because God said so and that needs no further explanation.
