How many of us now crave to be the prince and princess as well? I don't think I can count them all.
But fret not, for we are all princes and princesses in God's kingdom.
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to be the children of God, to those who believes in His name." ~ John 1 : 12
Isn't that a good news to everyone who believe in God?
Well, it doesn't just stop there. As a prince and princess, there are regulations they must follow, things they must do. What are those?
1. Royal Regulations
As Chinese Says: "Every house has its own rules." So does the royal family, as well as Christianity. We often says that Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship between us and our Father in Heaven, as in a family. If it is a relationship, don't we need to keep ourselves within the rules that our Father has set. Where do we find these rules? In the Bible. In fact, Jesus has summarized the rules for us.
Simple, yet can we follow it: "37Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’" ~ Matthew 22
As a part of the royal family, people eyes will be on them. The moment they make mistakes, people will just publish their mistakes, double sized. That's why they are taught about etiquette since they were young; some since they are part of the family. How to behave, what is right and what is wrong.
Often we as Christian are being taught to do what is right and to keep our distance from what is wrong. But yet, a lot of time we kept on doing the wrong things! As a result, we embarrassed God, other Christians and Christianity.
3. Love the People
A prince and princess must know how to win the people over for their king. So that the people will always support the king. The easiest and the most efficient way is through L-O-V-E, truthfully and sincerely.
Christians, start winning people over for God through love. But remember, always do it with a sincere heart.
