We are often told that we live in an uncaring world. It is hard to argue with that! For some people, life is like a daily crucifixion. They never get off the cross. The only thing they ever experience is abuse and rejection.

Before Jesus returned to His Father, He commissioned the apostles to an enormous task, to go out into the whole world and tell everyone about the Father’s love for them. All along, Jesus kept telling them that what He was asking them to do was going to be difficult and will meet with much opposition.
