  1. It is easy for an American Christian to relax in his dining room and read of the violence.

    Yet where will we unite to follow Jesus' commands to love our enemies, pray for them who despitefully use us, do good to them who hate us? Where will we inject God's love into these violent tactics and people accross the globe.

    Admittedly our flesh wants to "get them" and bring them to lawful justice even vengeance. We Christ followers friends of Jesus must leave that task to the legal systems in our nations.

     We must follow Jesus. Jesus says they,  the enemies, think they serve God yet they do not know the Father nor the son. They need to come to repentnace and to the gifts of God through Jesus who has
    already paid a price along with a price of many more persons. Have they paid a price in vain? The covenant says "the goodness of God leads to repentance." 'The goodness of God' can come through us.
