And Jesus tells and shows us that our lives are an opportunity to make the world a better place, a chance to bring the Kingdom of God into this world by our righteous acts, done with humility. (Matt. 4:17; 5:16; 6:1; 6:10)
We aren't called by Jesus to judge others' lives, and how they respond to the opportunity Jesus offers us. (Luke 6:37; Isaiah 33:22)
The world is God's, and all that is in it (Psalm 24:1) and we were created in God's image, being, therefore, a reflection of the divine. (Gen. 9:6) So, we are called by Jesus to mirror God's holiness in all that we do. "Be holy, for I am holy," says God in Leviticus. (19:2)
God calls us to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves. This is God's challenge to show to others all the love God shows to others. (Matt. 22:37-39; Deut. 6:5)
Jesus himself showed that this is possible, doing all the things that God told him to do, and becoming a perfect reflection of how God wishes us to live. (John 8:29; 14:31) Jesus was the man chosen and anointed by God to show us the way of God, and to be our perfect example and pattern of what God wants us to become. (Luke 4:18; John 13:15)
Let's commit ourselves to walk along a Highway of Holiness (Isaiah 35:8) doing all we can to seek to follow the path Jesus set for us to walk in his steps.
