Coram Deo: Daily Meditations on God’s Presence - Wednesday, March 5, 2014

The Standard of Perfection

Matthew 5:43–48

John Calvin also writes regarding today’s passage: “Christ assures us, that this will be a mark of our adoption, if we are kind to the unfaithful and evil.” Just as God’s love for His enemies does not mean He loves them the same way He loves us, so too will we love our enemies differently than we love our fellow Christians. Nevertheless, we are to do good to those who hate us in imitation of Jesus’ love. Do a good deed for an enemy today.

For further study:

1 Samuel 24:1–7

The Bible in a year:

Numbers 36–Deut. 1
