SERIES: Jesus Loves People
MESSAGE: Jesus Loves Haters
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:43-46;Luke 9:51-56

One of the worst things to ever hear or say are the words "I hate you." And since Jesus is the One who God sent to show love to the world, how He handled haters is significant. Today we will explore and hopefully apply two important lessons. Hatred can flow in two directions: hatred towards you and hatred from you. Jesus shows us what to do about both. Get ready by turning to two passages: Matthew 5 and Luke 9.


  1. If Hatred Is Directed to You (Matthew 5:43-46)

    1. Respond with Love

    2. Represent the God of Love

  2. If Hatred Is Developed in You (Luke 9:51-56)

    1. Your Words Must Be Rebuked

    2. Your Attitude Must Be Checked

    3. Your Prejudice Must Be Surrendered
