This is so much later than I was planning on posting, but does it matter? My view counts are at zero anyway... screw it! Part two of today's posts!

As a follower of Christ, it is a Christian's duty to try to live their life as a reflection of Christ's. We are expected to love our fellow man to the point of suffering and till we have absolutely nothing left to give. It is a painful, hard, and lowly life to live that offers little by way of earthly comforts; or at least that is what one should expect to go through. Now, as I am typing this post, I am not in that particular position at this time, but that is not to say that there are Christians that aren't or that I may not be at sometime in the future...

A frightening and somber thought, to be sure, but by God's grace we have the strength to continue to live on and by believing in his love for us and the love of others, we will be allowed to live a peaceful, happy life. And this is why we must strive to find that endless supply of love for those around us, despite our failings and differences; that by extending this love to others, it may also be given back to us so that even when we fail we may have hope and support to begin again.

This is the truth of Jesus' sacrifice for us, that by giving us an impossible example to aspire to, we may understand and forgive each other's weakness and by this mutual understanding, aspire toward that example together.
