This Is a Life-Changing Call to Act Different, to Talk Different, to BE Different
What does it mean to be Marked by Love?
The more I peel away the rules and expectations and exhausting obligations, the more I find the love of Jesus. These things don’t peel away easily—more like a price tag that you pick off in a million tiny pieces. But with every scrap removed there is exposed a treasure of love that was there the whole time—disguised and hidden by religion.
-- Tim Stevens
Jesus said the one thing that would set his disciples apart from others…they would be known by their love for each other. No tattoo. No uniform. No team colors or logos or code words. The one thing that would mark the followers of Jesus--love.
Consider. . .
How would I treat someone who I disagree with in a political discussion if I ran everything I said through a filter of love?
How would I treat the family member who drives me crazy if I were marked by love?
What would be different about my social media posts or comments if I really loved the people I was responding to or writing about?
How would I talk about or act toward the LGBTQ community if I was actually following in Jesus’ steps?
This is real life stuff.

I Don't Want to be Called a Christian....Do you?
Christian. In today’s world, at least in America, the word is either filled with baggage because of the actions or inactions of professing Christians through the ages. Or, it means absolutely nothing. For some, calling yourself a Christian has little to do with Jesus and a great deal to do with culture.
