LISTEN NOW! John, Greg, and Pat discuss how Israelis are loving on their enemies in particular Syrians. Syria has been involved in a 2 year civil war which has claimed the lives of over 100,000 people. They continue to share how some of those wounded are seeking medical attention at the Western Galilee Hospital in the northern Israeli town of Nahariya. Israeli soldiers have located Syrians who have been injured and they bring them to the hospital where they receive treatment many who would have died if they were not treated. According to CBN Dr. Massad Barhoum director general of Western Galilee Hospital is quoted as saying “Love your enemies.” When the wounded Syrians come in they are afraid especially the children and they hear words from the medical staff like “Be calm. I love you.” They continue to share how many people today are deceived and don’t know that God loves them. We must speak past their captivity to communicate how much God loves them. 1 John 4:20 says “If anyone says, I love God,” yet hates his brother he is a liar.” Jesus loves you and died on the cross and rose three days later for your sins. He took back the keys of death, hell and the grave so that you can receive him and spend eternity with him.
