During a recent Gospel meeting in Macari, Peru, an aged native farmer was joyfully converted to God. Following the meeting he fervently prayed: "Lord, forgive those who have done me much harm. They have taken away my land and my money. I should be rich, but now I am poor. I pray, forgive them."
It was the first time on his knees as a Christian. Precious fruit of grace in a newborn soul!
"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven." Matt. 5:43-45.
