And the King will reply to them, Truly, I tell you, in as far as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me.
This is at the end of the Chapter 25 where He is telling us about the ten foolish and ten wise virgins. I believe it is all relevant to being allowed to enter the marriage feast. He said those who were prepared went into the marriage feast. How do we prepare?
- Must have extra oil
- Must be faithful over a little
- Must not bury our talents
- Must feed the hungry and the thirsty
- Must care for the stranger
- Must care for the sick
- Must visit and care for the prisoner
We must be in tune with the Holy Spirit and the work He gives us to do. Your talent may be prayer. It may be to preach. It may be to administer healing and supplies. We are all different parts of the body of Christ. We each have a function.
However, we are all called to prayer, communion and praise and worship. Without these talents He will say, “I do not know you.” When we spend our time with Him, we grow in strength to perform the harder tasks.
We must learn to be merciful to those who do not deserve mercy as we ourselves received mercy when we did not deserve it. We are not naturally merciful. So, it may be easy at times to ignore those whom the Lord has placed in front of us to minister as it were unto Him.
It may be you are called to feed them spiritual food instead of physical food. Then you must be ready with the proper promise to apply to their bruised souls. We must always pray about what we do. We want to serve the Lord His way so we can hear Him say, “Well done good and faithful servant!”
Matthew 24:45 Who then is the faithful, thoughtful and wise servant whom his master has put in charge of His household to give to the others the food and supplies at the proper time?
Indeed we have different functionalities and they are all important.
The foot needs the toes and on and on. We all are one In Christ!
May we remain faithful until Jesus somes back!
How many ignore the least of these?
