Romans 12:9-13

9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; 11 not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, 13 contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.

When I read this passage, I know that on the previous Sabbath day, I show love with hypocrisy. Earlier on the holy day of worship, where I usually spent time with other Christians, reading & scripture together & learning how much the Lord loved me & my brothers & sisters in Christ, I had my usual awesome time. But later that holy Sabbath day, I returned to show love with hypocrisy, when someone was not kind to me. Instead of practicing the Love of Christ, I practice the hate Satan teaches. My brother in Christ, ask me on the phone, ask me how I can send out Scripture & show tooth for tooth, also teach Jesus loves everyone. I had relocated where I lived, because the situation between me & roommate was too toxic, some was my fault & some was there. Even if this scripture is about as husband & wife relationship, i sometime believe this what happen; 

2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?

But while I lived with these people, I didn’t alway show the love of Christ, I did sometimes, but then things did not go my way, my hypocrisy would come out. I even hated the man who put me in the house with these people & me. While I was packing to leave the place I kept thinking how I would get some kind of payback or revenge, even while loading my belongings I wanted to do some damage. Something inside me told me to return evil for evil, cause I had remembered that scripture &  because my cat advocate sister in Christ had told me about that verse, on that Sabbath day.

1 Peter 3:9 not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.

So now after a long day of moving & having Bible talk with my step father, I realize, i should let things go, like rain bouncing off my shoulder. Cause I know after reading this Scripture, when i was walking around, calling myself a man of God, & saying i wanted to get revenge, I was being a hypocrite. 

Dear Heavenly Father, please forgive me for showing hate, when I was supposed to show love without hate or love with hypocrisy, please help me more like Christ & offer forgiveness & love, to those who show me acts of hate & evil. Please help me live by the words i teach & I heard & continue to hear You preach. In Jesus name, I pray Amen!! God bless you, I love you all without hypocrisy. Sam H.

Proverbs 25:21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;22 For you will heap burning coals on his head,And the Lord will reward you.
