You were doing it to Me

In the Parable of the Sheep and Goats…Jesus says something absolutely amazing, powerful, and life changing…even eternal life changing.

Following is Matthew 25 verses 31, 33-40, 46:

SheepAndgoats“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit upon His glorious throne…He will place the sheep at His right hand and the goats at His left.

“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave Me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited Me into your home. I was naked, and you gave Me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for Me. I was in prison, and you visited Me.’

“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see You hungry and feed You? Or thirsty and give You something to drink? Or a stranger and show You hospitality? Or naked and give You clothing? When did we ever see You sick or in prison and visit You?’

“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to Me!’” “And…the righteous will go into eternal life.”

It is a profound, and humbling thought, to realize when you and I reach out to other people, Jesus says, “You were doing it to Me!”
