Lord Jesus, let the heart of a child be given to us, that so we may arise from the grave of our dead selves and die no more, but see face to face the God of the Living.
Look at the glorious way in which Jesus interprets the scripture that went before him. “I am the Lord” –“That ye may be perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Is it then reasonable to love our enemies? God does; therefore it must be the highest reason. But is it reasonable to expect that man should become capable of doing so?
