What can you do for others?
"I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." (Matthew 25 : 36)
And the people will answer Him, "When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?" (v 39)
Jesus continued, "And The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’" ( v 40).
Jesus went on to teach that He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels' (41).
This is a serious thing. You can get thrown into hell for not looking after the sick, or visiting those in prison or feeding the hungry? According to Jesus, you can because it shows you do not have love.
The apostle John put it this way: "We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death" (1 John 3: 14).
He continues, "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth" (v 18).
Is there someone you can show love to today? God bless.
Do you love to read but find that the most of the books out there contain graphic sex, violence or material that goes against your Christian beliefs? I have written a series of books called the "Egypt" series which strongly bear out the redemption story while providing all the emotion and suspense of a gripping novel. The first book Coming Out of Egypt is available here and the second book In The Wilderness is now on preorder here. Not sure if you're ready to buy?
