Many Christians today live out Jesus' teachings in the modern world. For many people this proves to be difficult as they are distracted by riches. They don't carry out Gods laws and claim to be Christians. To be a good Christian, people are expected to live out Jesus' teaching and be loyal. Many Christians dedicate their lives doing Gods work by becoming priests, nuns, monks and carrying out missionary work. Priests work in churches, dedicating their lives to God. They carry out services and community work with the help of lay people. Both priests and lay people are helping others just as Jesus did and wants us to do to create a kingdom of God on earth.
Nuns and monks devote their lives to God. They lead a simple life, wear plain clothes and eat basic food and live in small rooms with just a bed. Mother Teresa is a good example of a nun who unfortunately died recently in 1997.
She was born in Macedonia, August 27th 1910. At the age of 12 she was called by God and took her first vows in 1931, later in 1937 she took her final vows. Many monks and nuns are called by God that lead them to become missionary workers. She has achieved a lot in her life including receiving a Nobel peace prize for her work in India, Calcutta. She helped people with terminal illnesses, making their last days the best. Mother Teresa set up many hospices with the help of other nuns. She made a huge contribution fulfilling Jesus' expectations of the kingdom. She ignored riches and focused on people in need.
