If believers in Christ are born again, why does it seem so hard to fulfill the wishes of Jesus? Love joy and peace are supposed to be the order of the day. It seems a simple matter to just do what is required (having been born again as a result of believing) without reference to mountains of books and references or some mystical interaction because of some particular teaching.
LOVE one another, do good to those who do not do that to you, don’t be like everybody else, be different because you are doing what is required of you. It’s not that difficult. If you really believe that your death is done with and you are going to a better place, then your attitude in life needs to be as His was – to serve others, not yourself.
