“And the King will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’” (Matthew 25:40 HCSB).


Jesus’ teaching on the end times included this image of the righteous being commended for caring for the “least” of Christ’s brethren. Jesus equated their care for the hungry, sick and imprisoned in His flock, as caring for Him. For the Church is His body of which He is the Head. Jesus did not teach that such benevolence was a means of their salvation, but a mark of it. For those who are born again by faith in Jesus will be marked by their love of the brethren, even the “least of these”
Do you bear this mark of the righteous? Do you care for the brethren, your brothers and sisters in Christ? For how you treat the fellowship is how you are treating Christ.
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You for Jesus. Thank You for the gift of salvation through faith in Christ. Now, fill us afresh with Your Spirit of love and grace towards one another. For You teach us that they will know we belong to You by the way we love one another. In Jesus’ name, amen.
