Jesus Practiced what He Preached –

Read Mt 26.47-56, Mk 14.43-52, Lk 22.47-53, Jn 18.4-12 – When Judas sold the Son of God for thirty pieces of silver and betrayed Him with a kiss, Jesus called his enemy “friend.” When Peter cut off the ear of one of those seeking to kill Him, Jesus healed His enemy. Jesus commanded us, “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…” (Mt 5.44) How hard it is to love even those who mildly irritate us let alone someone trying to kill us. And yet Jesus practiced what He preached even in His last hour of agony and pain when He prays for His murders, “Father forgive them for they do not know what they do.” (Lk 23.34) When we say “I want to become like Jesus.” is this what we are talking about?
