Different Approach

Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!
Romans 12:14‭-‬16 NLT

Blessing people that persecute us , sounds strange is it , normally the first approach is to fire back ,or fight back but in this context Jesus is suggesting blessing people who persecute us …

Persecution draws us closer to God in prayer ,it is in persecution that you see your true friends ,when you are under oppression fake friends disappear ,if your love relationship was based on money once you go bankrupt lovers disappear they jump to the next guy with cash ..

As much as being persecuted is not something to wish for ,it brings clarity to your life ,when foundations of every relationship we have in life is being tested for endurance ,Submit totally to God .the Bible is suggesting that we mustn’t curse our persecutors infact we should pray that God will bless them…

In every situation giving thanks to God for he is the author and finisher of our life ,.Our life should be totally dependent on God , human persecution then appears as a promotion once our perception of life is from God’s point of view..

Joseph was persecuted by his brothers in Genesis ,his brothers in persecuting Joseph they were channelling him to Governorship..Your enemies are in fact positioning you to your destiny…

We don’t have time to curse ,we bless them..in humility knowing that Our God has everything under control . the last line in the verse I pasted there says “And don’t think you know it all ” I think that’s where most of us struggle ,everyone wants to be heard no one wants to submit that they don’t know …but Jesus gives us a solution here as a Christian don’t think you know it all , listening attentively is a character trait of a Christian ,and our language to be seasoned with grace ..

I am highly favoured ,Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross ,I am not worthy that sacrifice ,my life has been turned around ever since I gave my life to Christ.
