Jesus’ teaching about enemy-love demands that we wrestle with very difficult questions and take on some serious challenges; this Kyria download is designed to help you examine what Jesus’ call means for you, both in terms of people you don’t like and those whom it seems justifiable to hate. Including stories of radical forgiveness (a woman forgiving her son’s killer; a man seeking to forgive war criminals who’ve brutalized his people) and thoughtful explorations of why enemy-love is good for us, these articles and Reflect questions will help you journey through Scripture’s other teachings on this life-changing call to love.
A collection of Bible-based articles and resources to use for yourself or with a group of other women.
