Re:Verse Passage – Matthew 25:31-46 (day four)
Scripture told us it would happen. Jesus will return in all of His glory. He was despised and rejected by men, but He will return as King and Judge. Those that receive His favor are those that have served others. Notice that they did not even know when they had done it. Serving was a natural outgrowth of their love. They served, as a matter of course, those who were in need. The selfish group, the unrighteous, had been so self-consumed, they did not even see the needy.
We often get so busy and so self-absorbed, that we fail to see those around us in need. Ask God to open the eyes of your heart to see and act in compassion. When you are in a love relationship with the Lord, you will not only see the needy, you will serve them. Draw near to Him…the Lord’s pleasure is on those who serve. (P.S. – Is there anything else in Scripture that you have not paid attention to?)
