Follow Him

TODAY’S VERSE

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 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.’ – ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’Matthew 25:35-36, 40 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus used this parable to illustrate who His true followers were. He could have used any illustration. He could have said, “Those who know my word the best.” “Those that spend the most time in church.” “Those that pray the most.” But He didn’t. While those are all behaviors that we should take seriously, Jesus chose to immortalize those that helped the hungry, helpless, naked, sick and prisoners as His true followers. When are we going to get this? When are we going to see that this was foremost on Jesus’ mind? When are we going to see that this was what He personally exemplified? Let Jesus Himself tell us one more time, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, Help me to be more like You. Help me to get involved in helping and loving those that are in need.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
