Endearing Our Enemies

Endearing our enemies
Quite a new concept indeed
Not for Jesus
He whom did bleed
For those who crucified Him
Spit in His face
Mocked and ridiculed Him
To their own disgrace
Nevertheless He endured
Their beatings and belittling remarks
Saying, “Father forgive them.
For they know not what they do. "
Perhaps such a love
Is incomprehensible to you.
Not to our gentle Savior Jesus Christ
Who for humanity
Unashamedly gave His life
Preferring others over Himself
Christ laid down His life
Seeking nothing else
Than to honor and uplift mankind
So committed to this cause was He
He loved the foulest who were spiritually blind
He loved the Pharisees
Who were full of themselves religiously
He loved the tax collectors
Who only collected money
He loved the prostitutes
Who sold themselves for survival
He loved the desperate
Uplifting them and giving revival
He loved the adulteress woman
Who sought things that could never satisfy
Though when she was alone did cry
The wife who had five husbands
And was shacked up out of wedlock
Christ even loved His accusers
When they were in a disagreeing deadlock
Christ loved kings, princes, and noble men
Though he truly knew their struggles
And what was within them
He nurtured people despite their agenda
He loved wholeheartedly
Showing Himself bold and tender
Saul, a devout Jew, thought himself
To be obeying and serving God
While killing Christians
Christ visited him, knocking him to the ground
Suddenly even to this religious murderer
The love of God did abound
After which he put his anger down
Took up the gospel of love in a new sound
Endearing enemies
Loving everybody
This is what Christ was about
Overcoming evil with good
Transforming people and nations within
As a leader should
God help us in this hour
To use and apply similar methods
To rectify wrongs
Appeal to hearts
Rid ourselves of accusation
And throwing verbal darts
Help us depart from dehumanizing
Empower us to win our enemies
Give us divine strategies
Holy initiatives with supernatural wisdom
Enable us to take in the earth dominion
Not by weapons of war
On the contrary, help us believe for more
Even internal rehabilitation and transformation
Whereby God can enter in
And make our enemies a new creation
New inside and out
Ending strife and modeling life
This is what we should be about.
