People always say, ‘It’s your life, you choose how you live it’. This, of course, is true – but it seems to me that they are referring to the idea of living under your own rules. As a Christian this isn’t quite true. Yes, we make all our own decisions, but we do have a big helping hand, called the Bible.
The Bible says we are now co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8:17), seated with him in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 2:6). Therefore we are princes and princesses! We have, right there, the Kingdom of God, a Kingdom the Bible says where there is no sickness, no disease and no poverty. This is a cool Kingdom!

You might have noticed that there are Christians around you who are ill, or who may have died from a disease. And you may know Christians who are completely poor. This is because we still also live in this world. We kind of live in two places at the same time.

When we become a Christian, we enter the Kingdom of God, but the Bible says, we will not fully live in that Kingdom until Jesus returns. Therefore, until that happens, it is our obligation, to keep bringing God’s Kingdom into the world.
