Right now, while living within an increasingly polarized nation, the hardest thing to do is to keep emulating Jesus. I utilized the word emulating for a reason. I utilized it, for as Christians, we are not simply called to follow Jesus; rather, we are called to emulate Jesus. We are called to live by his example, not just quote his words (or commentary on his words). Moreover, we are not only called to participate in ritual, behind closed doors. Rather, we are called to bravely love on the discouraged, on the frontlines.
