In the parable of The Sheep and the Goats,Â Jesus says:
Â “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, 36Â 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.” Matthew 25:35-36
Clearly the actions we put to our faith matter.Â They matter to the Lord, they matter to “the least of these”, and theyÂ matter to our eternal destiny.Â
There is a reward for loving your neighbor as yourself.
Then the King will say to those on his right, â€˜Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. Matthew 25:34
I don’t do too well in this area on a consistent basis and that is convicting.
Prayer: “Lord by your grace, help me live more like a sheep than goat! Forgive me. In Jesus name, amen.”
About Season Of Light
I am writing a devotional series called â€œSeason of Lightâ€ (#SeasonOfLife) during the beginning of 2016, focusing on the 40 day season of Epiphany (from January 6 â€“ February 10). Weâ€™ll explore the major biblical themes ofÂ the beginning of Jesus ministry, and Iâ€™ll comment as the Holy Spirit inspires. This is for the purpose of growing in our relationship with the Lord. My desire â€“ my hope and prayer for you â€“ is that yourÂ heart may expand and your spirit grow brighter as we seek to be filled with the knowledge and presence of God. So, I invite you to join me on the â€œSeason of Lightâ€ journey!
Often Iâ€™ll be inspired by a scripture from the Daily Audio Bible readings and use that as a writing prompt.
