You Shall Be Perfect As Your Father [1]

The Lord Jesus sets before us a couple of the most difficult commands of what it means to be salt of the earth and light of the world - do not resist an evil person, and love your enemies. Yet the goal of these commands is to become perfect like our heavenly Father. This message focuses on the first point - do not resist an evil person, but rather show unparalleled kindness and mercy; and Jesus is the one who went through each of the illustrations he uses, showing that unparalleled kindness and mercy to sinners, on the cross.
