Jesus is kind to us
Do you know Jesus was kind to us even when we were God’s enemies?
Col 1:21 “This includes you who were once far away from God. You were His enemies, separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions.”
But even though we were God’s enemy, and left to die because of our sin, Jesus still came to die for us. He was kind to us — He cleaned us with His blood, He lifted us and took care of us, He paid the price of our sins for us.
Titus 3:3-7 explains it well. “At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.”
Jesus showed us kindness when He died on the cross for us to save us from our sin and death.
We can be kind just as Jesus is kind to us
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Jesus forgave us and showed us kindness when we were His enemies. Today, we have Jesus in our lives, so we can show kindness to others — our family, our friends, strangers and yes, even our enemies!
