2 Kings 6:19-23 says,Follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom you seek.” But he led them to Samaria.
20 So it was, when they had come to Samaria, that Elisha said, “Lord, open the eyes of these men, that they may see.” And the Lord opened their eyes, and they saw; and there they were, inside Samaria!
21 Now when the king of Israel saw them, he said to Elisha, “My father, shall I kill them? Shall I kill them?”
22 But he answered, “You shall not kill them. Would you kill those whom you have taken captive with your sword and your bow? Set food and water before them, that they may eat and drink and go to their master.” 23 Then he prepared a great feast for them; and after they ate and drank, he sent them away and they went to their master. So the bands of Syrian raiders came no more into the land of Israel.
This scripture truly reflects the nature of Christ through Elijah. When we were yet still sinners and blinded by the ways of sin. Christ gave His life and led us into the courts of God. Then the great Judge of all – Jesus – did not condemn us, but judged our hearts by preparing a great celebration and setting a table of the finest and heavenly food in front of us – Faith, Hope, and Love. By this action of Jesus, our hearts were judged and we all went away never to steal, kill, and destroy again.
Love your enemies and save them.
