Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.' Matt. 25:37-40
Jesus Himself identified with the poor and needy. He was, literally, hungry, thirsty, homeless, without clothing, and beaten to the brink of death. Jesus served the poor and needy. He gave bread to the hungry and water to those who thirst. And He secured, by His life, death and resurrection, a heavenly home, a righteous robe, healing and freedom for all who come to Him impoverished and needy.
Where the gospel is preached, believed, and lived, the very life of Jesus continues to give life to others—food, water, clothing, shelter, medicine and freedom. Those with more see those with less through eyes of care and compassion—the eyes of Christ Himself. Serving and giving become tangible acts of gratitude for all that Jesus has done and all He has given.
Serving our community is not an obligation nor duty. It is a privilege and a delight. Doing whatever we can do for “the least” in our community is an act of worship. It is a labor of love. It is with joy that we open our hands and hearts to our community, as if to Christ Himself.
