You don’t really want what you think you want,
And that’s why getting what you want,
Doesn’t satisfy ‘you’ for long.
The Christian life, according to Jesus, is clearly marked by social justice. If one is not engaging in building God’s Kingdom on the earth as it is in heaven, that person is simply not living the Jesus way. Love is the chief mark of a child of God and love is always an action. Love is about sacrifice. Yes, it is important to tell people we love them and that God loves them. But even better and more powerful than that is to show them God’s love for them. To be the hands and feet of Jesus to the lonely stranger on the street.
