Read the Bible in a Year This evening read Matthew 25:31--46 Would We Help Jesus? If you saw Jesus Christ in your town and He needed help, would you give it? There is probably not a person on the face of the earth, who would deny the Son of God want He needed. How would we expect Him to look? Would He be better looking than everyone else? Would He look holy or more holy than the rest of the crowd? Surely, we would be able to pick Him out of the multitudes, rigtht? No, not necessarily. This was the point that He was making when He revealed in Matthew 25 how that many people will be surprised when they are rejected from entering heaven. Then He will answer them, saying, "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me." (Mt. 25:45, NKJV) When they did not help one of His insignificant brethren, Jesus considered that a rejection of Him. You see, if Jesus lived on the earth now, He would not be different in appearance and manner of living than anyone, except He would be sinless. Think of it, is this not how He was when He did truly live on the earth? He was a carpenter. He was from Nazareth. He had nothing else that people claim as items of fame. He was not good looking. He appeared to be just an average man. How then do I treat the people around me, especially my brothers and sisters in the church? Think about this seriously, for what you will read in Matthew 25 today shows that eternity depends upon these things.
