Matthew 25:34-36 Then the king will say to those at his right hand, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”

If I say I love and follow Jesus, that love will be expressed in my actions and attitudes toward others, in relationship with others. With heart and mind and body, Jesus comes to us. He prays, worships, notices, cares, touches, cries, eats, drinks, and laughs up close with us—not for his own benefit but for love, to show us what loves looks like.

As followers of Jesus, we are called to be present and accountable for our neighbors—not for our own benefit but so they know what love looks like, too.

MOVING FORWARD: How will you seek and serve Jesus today?
