Matthew 5:44-45 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Matthew 5:44-45

“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”


The sun is the physical light of this world, but Jesus is the True Light of this world. So, causing His sun to rise = Jesus rising from the grave and shining His light into this world! Rain is water that brings life to the earth, but Jesus is the Living Water that brings life to those who believe and turn to Him!


So, one of the things I see here is the foreshadowing of the resurrection and outpouring of Jesus into and onto this world. An outpouring of salvation for some and judgment for others! Nothing in or on this world can stop the Son from shining or stop the outpouring of Himself on this world! The entire Bible points us to Jesus because He is our hope in this hopeless world!


God bless, and I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise now and forever to God Almighty, King Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!
