Rev. Ken Lunsford took his lesson from Matthew 25: 31-46. These verses from the Bible tell us we should feed the hungry, give the thirsty something to drink, welcome a stranger, clothe the naked, take care of the sick, and visit those in prison. Jesus said, “I assure you that when you have done it for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you have done it for me.”
We need to view those in need as our brothers and sisters in Christ. The Spirit of Jesus lives in our heart and we see others through His eyes. Saints of God have a heart for those at the bottom of society. This has always been so.
I believe God calls each of us to do something to make life better for someone else. That is what the text in Matthew is saying to us, isn’t it? We see Christ in the poor and in the suffering of the world. But when we enter into their need and try to serve them, something extraordinary happens. They also see Christ in us!
