The GOSPEL OF JESUS – Turn the Other Cheek

Posted by on Jul 14, 2013 in Gospel of Jesus | One Comment
This teaching of JESUS is another dynamic that defines the authentic GOSPEL OF JESUS:  Matthew 5:39:  “I tell you not to resist an evil person.  But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.” 
This verse reveals the humiliation of being a Christian.  In the natural realm, if a person does not hit back, it is because he is a coward.  But in the spiritual realm, it is the very evidence of the Son of GOD in him if he does not hit back.  When you are insulted, you must not only not resent it (as if that is a simple thing), but you must make it an opportunity to exhibit the Son of GOD in your life.  And you cannot imitate the nature of JESUS—it is either in you or it is not.  A personal insult becomes an opportunity for a saint to reveal the incredible sweetness of the LORD JESUS. – Oswald Chambers
