If you spend time getting to know Jesus then you will find his teachings often run counter culture. For example, he said things like: love your enemy… in fact pray for those who persecute you;, don’t seek to be first, but instead be last – a servant; take what you have, sell it and give it to the poor. Jesus said these things and so much more.
Through it all Jesus taught and modeled what he desired of us, and with it basically there is a call to walk out of step with society with the hope that people will come to see Christ in us through both what we say and do in our lives.
So I challenge us all – myself included – to get to know Jesus and his teachings a little better and see what difference we can make both in our lives and in the world around us.
