Graham Cooke: What if every person you meet can empower you directly or indirectly to become like Jesus? 

Standard

​What if God has brought certain people into your life to teach you about His nature even if they don’t like you? What if every person you meet can empower you directly or indirectly to become like Jesus? What if this is one of the great games of the Holy Spirit? You know the Holy Spirit, Mr. Enthusiasm, He loves games! He makes everything a game because we seem to learn better like that. So what if God has allocated a fruit of the Spirit to you for all negative circumstances and relationships? Like it says in Matthew 5:44, “Love your enemies, bless them that persecute you”; you are going to have some enemies and the purpose of an enemy is to teach you to love better.
