After reliving the great events of the life of Christ, the worshiping Church spends half a year focusing on the teachings of Christ. Those teachings include a description of the footsteps that we as Christians walk while following Jesus. Today Jesus calls us to love not only those who are easy to love. He calls us to love strangers, enemies, and outcasts. He calls us to love our neighbor whether he appears all that lovable or not. This kind of love can only come from a heart that has first known God's love for us.
