The Work of empty tomb ®
Some of Jesus' “harder sayings,” that we love our enemies, feed the hungry, and love our neighbor as ourselves, were said to Christians, in general, and therefore to the church, the gathered body of believers. It is the church's responsibility to act on these commands of Jesus that we love one another.
