You have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thineenemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, dogood to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, andpersecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven .. .
? ?? ?当H.G.威尔斯总结耶稣在历史上的影响时，他说：“这有什么可奇怪的吗，相对于我们渺小的心来说，这个加利利人太伟大和丰富了。”然而人心虽然渺小，却又大到足够住进基督，只要你为他预备地方。基督用基督式的爱之精神浇灌了他的追随者，好让他们生而为善，死而无怨。基督所说的这种爱只能由神给予我们，它是圣灵的果子之一。当你来到耶稣基督面前，他会转变你，宽恕你的过往。你会获得爱他人的力量，这是种超越了你爱之本能的力量。
? ? When H. G. Wells summed up the influence of Jesusin history, he said, “Is it any wonder that this Galilean is too much for our small hearts?” And yet the heart of man, thoughsmall, is big enough for Christ to live in, if man will only make room for Him.Christ instilled the spirit of Christian love in His followers, so that theylived without malice and died without rancor. The love that Christ talked aboutcan only be given to us by God. It is one of the fruits of the Spirit. When youcome to Jesus Christ, He transforms you. Your past is forgiven. You receive apower to love men, beyond your natural ability to love.
