The life of Jesus shows us that we can do all things that God asks us to do, because God's chosen one has done them as an example we can follow.
God, our eternal Creator, knows us better than we know ourselves. He creates our souls and wishes us to enjoy Him and love Him.
Our lives have meaning when we are following a pattern God sets for us. But He has not given us this pattern to mock us, nor has God given us impossible tasks so that every person would fail.
God gives us, from birth, gifts that are meant to be used for Good. Therefore, we must do all that is in our power to perform Good Works, relying on these natural gifts.
We also have the perfect moral example of Jesus whom God chose and out to us, to show by his teachings, life and death how we should live our lives.
God also grants us ongoing gifts of wisdom and strength - to supplement all we have been already given - so that we might better accomplish what His chosen one, Jesus, calls us to do.
When we fail to live up to the standards Jesus sets for us, we repent and seek God's inexhaustible mercy and forgiveness. But we must not make excuses for not seeking what Jesus commands, nor hold God responsible for HIS promises if we refuse to strive to fulfill our own.
But how do we KNOW that we can do what God has required of us?
Because Jesus, God's spokesman and our example, lived in perfect obedience, doing in all things that pleased God, his and our Father, and showed by this example that ALL are able to do as he did, and to obey God.
Jesus, therefore, has made God's Kingdom possible, through his life, teachings and even through the example of his death.
It's possible for us to understand and actively pursue Godly concepts like virtue, righteousness, honesty, self-sacrifice, and service.
It's possible to treat others with dignity, serving them and loving them as Jesus did.
It's possible for us to actively pursue Godliness, and seek the Righteousness that Jesus calls us to pursue.
It's possible for us to avoid sinful behaviors that separate us from God, our Creator.
And it's possible for us to gain eternal life and reunite with God, not through vain words or demanding it, but by trusting God to be the Judge, and letting us be His children.
In truth, Jesus assures us by his life and teachings that we can achieve all that God asks of us.
Let us go forth and do Good Works in humility and for the glory of God's Kingdom!
