Saw this on Reddit today:
I'm going to start sounding like a broken record on this, but read the gospels. Try this: make a list of things that Jesus commands his disciples to do. Before long you'll get to something that sounds unreasonable. Go out and try to do that. Love somebody who's an asshole to you. Give away a little more money than you're comfortable giving. Take a couple of sandwiches to the park and sit down and share them with a homeless person.
If you begin living the lifestyle commands of Jesus and open your heart to him, you will slowly come into harmony with him, and he will be with you. He will be in you. This works.
