He Causes His Sun to Shine

"For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matthew 5:45) What does this really mean, and how does it apply to our lives?

He Causes His Rain to Fall

Fellowship - click to enlarge

Sometimes the sun shines without the rain. The ground can begin to grow dry. We can begin to feel faint. This happens for both the evil and the good.

Sometimes the rain falls without the sun. We can feel as though we are drowing, sinking in gloom and despair, as though the sun will never shine. This happens for both the just and the unjust.

But these are cycles, seasons, and if we keep moving forward, we will come out on the other side.

This passage tells us to love our enemies, and that God sends his sun and rain to them as well. If God sends sun and rain to the good and evil alike, how can we refuse love to those who have done us wrong? Even we who are washed in the blood of the Lamb have done things against God that are worthy of eternal punishment and separation from him; and it was while we were still practicing those things, that Jesus poured out his blood for us.

We need to shine the love of God and give living water to the dry and thirsty around us. We need to love our enemies. We need to bless those who curse us. We need to do good to those who hate us. We need to pray for those who spitefully use and persecute us.
