“Love Your Enemies”

The story is told of a minister who treated Christmas Evans most unkindly.

Soon afterwards this minister was charged with a crime and taken to court. On the day of the trial Christmas Evans went aside in secret and pleased with God that his old foe might be upheld, and his name cleared.

With what delight did he hear the news that he had been acquited. He was with a company of ministers at the time, but, with tears in his eyes, he immediately fell on his knees, exclaiming, “Thanks be unto Thee, O Lord Jesus, for delivering one of Thy servants from the mouths of the lions.”
