We do not live our life on our own terms. We possess no more than we are able to give away. God so loved the world that He gave, scripture tells us. God so loves the world that She gives. "Love one another as I have been loving you." (John 13:34) This is the only kind of life Jesus describes as his disciples' calling. This is not something we must do in order to get to heaven one day. If we are doing this, we are already in God's Kingdom. If that isn't to our taste in present time, we won't be at home with it for eternity.
