Christian living is hard. Jesus talks about denying ourselves and picking up a cross and following him. Paul writes that we are to live a life of love, and then describes what he thinks that looks like. We can live defensively, or offensively, and both Paul and Jesus speak to the offense. What might a life lived in the offense look like?
