Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13 NIV84)

When is it enough?
People say, “You should give generously.” “You should always be as kind as possible.” “you should love people.”

One problem: If we are living in a world of “should”, how can we ever expect to get into the reality of “is”?

The simple answer: to love as Christ loves us.

So what does that entail?

It’s more than 10% every Sunday. It’s more than reading your Bible. Gosh, it’s even more than the one (or six) hour(s) you spend inside of a church per week.

Loving as Christ loves you is giving your all, body, soul, and mind, for Him to use, strengthen, and even take away.

When you give yourself to Him, it shows. Suddenly, you realize that the world is bigger than you are. Good works were once done because God wanted or didn’t want you to do it. Now, that partly still applies, but good works are done now also because you start to consider the betterment of the community of believers.

I know what you may be thinking. “Oh, great, The Jesus Freak Girl is going to tell me what I should be doing. What a hypocrite.”

Instead of doing that, I’ve decided to take up a little challenge with you.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to tell at least one person a day through the end of the month that Jesus loves them, and so do you!

You can tell anyone this. Reach out and get creative! I’d love to hear about how it goes.
