Loving people is hard. Why? It’s perfectly natural to be afraid of people who are different. Different means unknown and the unknown could be dangerous. Is it any wonder that fear defines so many relationships across differences in religion, ethnicity, class, and gender? Plus, the needs of others often make costly demands on our personal freedom. However, the love of Jesus is greater than fear. And even though it’s costly, the love of Jesus is far better even than personal freedom. Following the way of Jesus leads to a life of relationships defined by Remarkable Love.
