Join the Resistance - John 13:35

Jesus' resurrection is the defining event in the history of mankind. It was the moment in which God created a bridge between heaven and earth, making it possible for people to gain eternal life. It was also the moment in which Jesus resisted the power of evil most directly. He stood up to death , and he did it with nothing but love. In the same way we are called to resist evil with love as well. In our daily lives when we face fear, evil and death we are called to, "Join the resistance, fall in love."

Resist Fear
  • There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear. - 1 John 4:18
Resist Evil
  • If you love me, you will obey what I command. - John 14:15
Resist Death
  • For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16
